Edible Marijuana Tweets

A recent paper published in the American Journal of Health Promotion reported a content analysis of edible marijuana tweets on Twitter.  A random sample of 5000 tweets containing edibles-related key words was analyzed.

Three out of four tweets related to marijuana edibles normalized or encouraged edibles use.  Specifically, tweets emphasized edibles intense or long-lasting effects.  Most tweets were from youth ages 17-24 years.

These results suggest that social media like Twitter could increase marijuana popularity and use, particularly among young people.

This study’s findings highlight the need for evidence-informed marijuana education and prevention, including the use of social media.
