Valentine's Day is coming up, and it looks like the thing to gift your sweetheart isn't roses or chocolates - but cannabis! A recent study revealed that a majority of U.S. adults over 21 are looking forward to gifting marijuana this February 14th. An even more surprising statistic? Parents were found to be much more likely than those without children when it comes to giving gifts including weed in their holiday plans.
A new survey has revealed a widening acceptance of cannabis in the United States. Commissioned by multi-state operator Verano Holdings and conducted by Wired Research, 961 Americans aged 18 or over were polled between January 24 - 29 2023 to gauge their attitudes toward marijuana and its associated purchasing behaviors. Results indicated an increased interest as well as more personal usage when it comes to cannabis across America.
The latest study offers an interesting glimpse at the facts and figures behind its findings and here's what to take from it.
A recent study showed that a startling number of American adults believe marijuana positively affects their sexual experience. With nearly one in four people claiming cannabis use enhances their performance.

According to survey results, 66% of adults planning on using or giving away marijuana come from this region compared with 55%, 61%, and 63% respectively for Midwest, West & South regions. Accessibility may be an underlying factor driving this emerging movement toward incorporating marijuana into Valentine's festivities!
The cannabis industry is taking off in a big way on the East Coast, with more than four states - Connecticut, New York, Vermont, and New Jersey – launching legal recreational programs over the past 12 months.
