Asked about the legitimacy of these stats, Ryan Taylor, who sent this information to CelebStoner via Fresh Mechanism, says:

"While tweets can't really be considered 'hard data,' I do believe they're a good temperature gauge in terms of measuring sentiment towards a certain subject. In addition, because of the larger number of tweets available, the same size is far greater than any survey. Basically, what we're showing is that if a state talks about vaping cannabis more than smoking it (joints, bongs, bowls, blunts, etc.) or edibles, that may signify that vaping cannabis could be the most popular method to consume, or at the very least, the most popular method to consume among Twitter users in that particular state, which is a significant amount of people. In addition, it's no accident that these things have a regional component as you will often find trends among certain regions of the country, like the Upper Northeast talking about edibles more than any other way to consume."
