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

Over 1 in 11 Kent County youth (9.2%) reported marijuana use in the past 30 days. Males (9.1%) and females (9.2%) were similar in their reporting of 30-day marijuana use. The percentage of Hispanic/Latino youth reporting use (14.3%) was greater than that of African American (10.1%) and Caucasian (7.6%) youth.


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