Civilized has partnered with PSB this year to conduct a survey of over 1,600 North American adults and explore modern cannabis culture. One thing we wanted to find out was how non-cannabis consumers feel about medical marijuana.
Well, most of them think it makes pretty good medicine. In fact, nearly 3 quarters (73%) of the people asked said they believe cannabis has medical benefits. With the growing base of research that also supports medical marijuana, it's good to hear that non-consumers are on-side.
But the fact that 17% of people said they didn't know if cannabis has medical benefits or not means there are opportunities to improve cannabis education and make people aware of cannabis' medical potential.
With that said, the people who believe cannabis does not have medical benefits is the clear minority with only 10% of the vote.
