Marijuana Consumption and Access among Midwest College Students
Ruggeri, David; Teti, Michelle
Education, v139 n1 p43-51 Fall 2018
Objective: To examine differences in marijuana consumption, access to marijuana, and perception of harm of consuming marijuana among college students enrolled in a small liberal arts college versus a large state university. Methods: Currently enrolled college students at a liberal arts college or large state university were e-mailed a link to an online survey through their assigned university e-mail address during the Spring 2016 semester. Results: 46.9% of state university students have consumed marijuana within the past 30 days, compared to 31.3% of liberal arts college students. 80.8% of state university students report marijuana use present at a party within the past 6 months, versus 49.6% for liberal art college students. Students at the liberal arts college perceived consuming marijuana weekly is more harmful than students at the state university, 16% to 8.2%. Conclusions: Diverse policies must be created for small and large institutions as student consumption patterns and perception of harm differ.
