MMJ Contact Registry Snapshots

In summer 2020, the Consortium launched the Medical Marijuana (MMJ) Contact Registry to connect people to research studies to support understanding about medical marijuana use.

People interested in participating in medical marijuana research share their contact and basic demographic information through the contact registry.

We compiled the following snapshots to showcase the distribution of participant demographics, geographic distributions, medical marijuana status, and more from the Medical Marijuana Contact Registry.

The following numbers are approximated to protect participants’ privacy. Numbers reflect data collected through October 5, 2021 unless stated otherwise.

Please note: The data snapshots include the latest Medical Marijuana Contact Registry updates. The actual contact registry counts may differ from these data snapshots counts due to a delay between the time a participant consents and the time his/her record is included in the Medical Marijuana Contact Registry data that are visible in these data snapshots. The delay is a result of the time it takes for participant data to be collected and updated to these data snapshots.
