Study: Cancer patients use less marijuana than general public

The study, published in the journal Cancer by researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University Massey Cancer Center, analyzed data over a span of four years and found that reports of marijuana use peaked at 9% for cancer patients, compared to 14% among people with no cancer history.

This paper drew on data collected between 2013 and 2018 from the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH), which tracks a representative sample of Americans to survey smoking behaviors, including marijuana.
