The percentage of American adults who say they smoke weed has nearly doubled in three years, according to a new Gallup poll.
Among those who participated in the survey, one in eight — 13% — reported current marijuana use, and 43% said they have tried the drug, an increase from 38% in 2013. The percentage of pot smokers was 7% in the 2013 Gallup survey.
The poll results were based on telephone interviews with about 1,000 randomly chosen adults.
Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in the United States, according to the 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (PDF).
