Cannabis Among US Adults: Associations within Racial, Ethnic and Sexual Minoritized Populations

Cannabis use is steadily increasing in the United States, with daily and medical use associated with cannabis use disorder (CUD) and the negative consequences more frequent among marginalized groups. In this study, the authors use the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) to examine medical and daily use and CUD across the intersections of racial, ethnic, and sexual minorities. They found that sexual minorities were more likely to have medical and daily use and CUD than their heterosexual counterparts within each racial and ethnic group. However, when examining the intersection of race, ethnicity and sexual identity, there was more heterogeneity across these groups.
