In a recent study, it was discovered that more parents with children at home are smoking weed.

This isn't just happening in Rockford, it's going on throughout the United States.

According to

"Cannabis use by parents rose from 11 percent in 2002 to 17 percent in 2015, according to new research out of Columbia University."

"Furthermore, cannabis use among parents with kids at home rose from 5 percent in 2002 to 7 percent in 2015."

There is good news, "fewer moms and dads are smoking cigarettes."

Since pot is still illegal in most states, most of the use is going on in the home. This has researchers worried about secondhand smoke for the children.

“Educating parents about secondhand cannabis-smoke exposure should be integrated into public health-education programs on secondhand-smoke exposure.”
