Apparently, mostly in a positive light.

A new research study published in Drug and Alcohol Review analyzed marijuana content on the platform, including concerns with youth consumption, considering that one-third of TikTok users are under 14 years of age.

The study, “Getting high for likes: Exploring cannabis-related content on TikTok,” found that cannabis consumption is mainly seen as positive on the platform.

Facebook-owned Instagram (BCBA: FB) accounts are removed daily for cannabis-related content, even if they don’t advertise/sell or promote its use. However, there are exceptions in social media, such as Amazon-owned video game streaming service Twitch (BCBA: AMZN), which allows users to keep identifiers that contain references to cannabis.

If you want to hear more about the relationship between TikTok and cannabis, listen to this Benzinga podcast.
