According to studies performed by the Office of Applied Studies, National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2003 and 2004, the total number of people ages 12 and older in the state of Idaho who used marijuana in the past year is 101,000. Of the 101,000, 19,000 were between the ages of 12 and 17. 40,000 past year marijuana users were of ages 18 to 25 and 42,000 were 26 and older. Total use of marijuana in the past month, according to the same survey, by people ages 12 and older is 55,000. 10,000 were ages 12 to 17, 21,000 were 18-25 and 25,000 were age 26 or older.
Marijuana use in Idaho is still currently illegal, even for medical use. A group known as Compassionate Idaho is currently working on a petition to have medical marijuana use put on the November 2014 ballot. They are gathering as many signatures as possible by April of 2014 so that they can educate law makers about having compassion for the terminally ill and those who have chronic severe pain. Idaho's current law is if someone is found in possession of an ounce of marijuana they will face up to a year in jail or up to a $1,000 fine.
Marijuana rehab and treatment centers in Idaho don't always work for some who want to have a positive change in their life, but now there are currently non-12 step programs that will teach you how to have that ability to change your life.
