30-day Use of Marijuana, by Gender and Race / Ethnicity

Over 1 in 10 Kent County youth (11.3%) reported marijuana use in the past 30 days. Males (11.2%) and females (11.5%) were similar in their reporting of 30-day marijuana use. The percentage of African American youth reporting use (16.4%) was greater than that of Hispanic (13.7%) and Caucasian (9.9%) youth.


These data suggest that the percentage of students who indicated that they recently used marijuana (within the past 30 days) decreased slightly since 2013/2014.
