The NCAA recently released a report on substance use habits for college athletes. Naturally, I skipped over all of the other substances and went straight to the data that had to deal with marijuana. Below is a summary of what the report said in regards to college athletes and marijuana:

  • 22% of athletes claimed to have used marijuana in the past year
  • Broken down by division, 29% of Division III athletes consumed marijuana in the last year, compared to 20% for Division II, and 16% for Division I
  • 25% of male athletes consumed marijuana in the last year, compared to only 17% of female athletes

By far the sport where athletes consumed marijuana the most was lacrosse. Nearly half of college lacrosse players consumed marijuana in the last year (46.3%). The next closest sport was swimming (32.7%), followed by soccer (31%). Track (18.2%) and basketball (19%) were the lowest on the list of sports in the report. Long story short, if you are looking to toke up on a college campus with an athlete, hit the local Division III campus and look for lacrosse players!

  1. “22% of athletes claimed to have used marijuana in the past year”

    Isn’t that about the same rate as in the general population?

  2. Captain Obvious on

    Mr. Phelps smoked and did fine. I see pubmed shows it increases lung capacity that could be beneficial to aerobics. It will be interesting as more research comes to light on this.

  3. LOL is this trickle down marijuanomics ? It basically goes from the richest kids sport to the poorest …wonder which ones get “caught” the most
