HOLYOKE -- The Cannabis Community Care and Research Network of Somerville Thursday said it will work with the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth to mount a national survey of marijuana use.

"The survey is aimed to better understand consumer/patient demographics, attitudes, choices, methods of consumption and knowledge of cannabis products in legal cannabis states," a press release said.

Dr. Marion McNabb, a public health doctor and CEO and co-founder of the Cannabis Community Care and Research Network ("C3RN"), said she was announcing the survey Thursday at an event in Worcester.

The plan for the survey was approved by the institutional review board of UMass-Dartmouth and findings are to be published in a peer-reviewed journal and provided at conferences and forums, the press release said.

"Information from the national anonymous cannabis survey will be used to improve the understanding of the consumer and patient population as the new legal adult-use markets open across the United States and in Massachusetts this summer," the press release said.
