The U.S. poison control centers received about 100,000 calls last year involving the use of marijuana, according to the most recent annual report from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration. That’s an increase of about 45 percent compared to the decade before, but still far fewer than the roughly 4 million calls that call-takers fielded in the mid-1990s.
According to the National Poison Data System, there were nearly 20,000 poison center calls related to marijuana between 2013 and 2017. This is an increase from the 4,000 calls made in the decade prior, and more than double the number of calls made in the decade before that.420 Intel is the world’s leading source of cannabis information.
