Study shows pot more popular among teenagers

December 15, 2009

COPENHAGENDETROITWASHINGTONWASHINGTON — - Smoking marijuana is becoming even more popular among U.S. teens and they have cut down on smoking cigarettes, binge drinking and using methamphetamine, according to a federal survey released Monday. More teens also are getting high on prescription pain pills and attention-deficit drugs, according to eighth-, 10th- and 12th-graders surveyed by the University of Michigan for the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The increase of teens smoking pot is partly because of the national debate over medical use of marijuana, researchers said.
