Its still looked on a being " cool " by the young.

And that is one of the reasons that I am so surprised that teenagers are smoking as I didn't think it was still cool, That and where do they get the money from!

Its the eating of it that is likely to be toxic to animals not passive smoking.

If you do suspect your pet has ingested cannabis—showing symptoms such as dizziness or wobbling, unusual lethargy, loss of appetite or incontinence, agitation, vomiting, increased or decreased heart rate, or lowered body temperature—keep it warm and offer, but don't force, water to keep it hydrated.
I'll add in step number one:

Call the vet asap!

Seriously - the pet isn't high, the pet is ill, potentially seriously. Call the vet, give accurate information, and let the vet determine the next steps.

A little light reading:
https://vcahospitals.com/know-your-p...-dogs-and-cats

From that article (my bold):

Cats and dogs can become intoxicated by cannabis in various ways; by inhaling second-hand smoke, eating edibles (baked goods, candies, chocolate bars, and chips containing cannabis), or ingesting cannabis directly (in any form). Most exposures are accidental when curious pets discover access to the drug or when they are present in the same room with a person smoking cannabis. Dogs have more cannabinoid receptors in their brains, which means the effects of cannabis are more dramatic and potentially more toxic when compared to humans. A small amount of cannabis is all it takes to cause toxicity in cats and dogs.

The form of exposure is key to treatment. For instance, the article mentions that a dog who has eaten a brownie may require treatment for both chocolate and marijuana toxicity, while inhalation may require respiratory treatment.

So be sure to give your vet all information possible: Exactly what, how much, when consumed and when symptoms began, accurate description of symptons, etc. And of course, weight of animal and any other concurrent conditions.

Re: Neighbour's marijuana smoke sipping into our apartment

Fact is that smoking is highly addictive. physically and mentally. I had to quit 30 years ago for my daughter. It was really tough. So glad I did now and grateful to her.

Maybe not directly related to edu but to amount of stress or stress management skills, this is interesting.

I know that the stats in terms of health are always in favor of people with higher income, so maybe that graphs is talking about the nature of jobs as opposed to schools and degrees, too.

No it's by education levels of those asked. More education generally would lead to a reduction in uptake or a greater willingness/ability to stop.

We could plot side by side something like cocaine consumption - would probably be a reversed trend.

I sincerely doubt you can compare smoking habits in America to smoking in Switzerland. I don't think smoking has a lot to do with education here.

Maybe.

But education levels definitely also correlate to jobs and opportunities. So MC's point is valid.

Or at least it is likely there is an overlayering of multiple reasons and causes.

Maybe also to do with opportunites for smoking.

As in sometimes just as smoking can be a habit, not smoking can become a habit if you are forced to refrain for long enough.

You frequently see bricklayers or guys digging a trench actually with a cigarette in their mouths.

In the office that isn't allowed. So that may make it easier for people there to quit.

I wonder if, for example, people who work in oil refineries or petrol stations, where smoking bans are maybe stricter than anywhere else, have a lower incidence of smoking that their peers with similar education levels in other jobs?

This would maybe partially explaining why the USA has been more succesful than most European countries in reducing smoking rates. The more extensive bans in public spaces remove opportunities and thus helps break habits.
