The rate of smoking in adolescents in the United States has dropped so rapidly that a national survey of adolescent drug use released on the 14th shows that smoking and smoking marijuana are now more common than smoking.
Jan Hoffman of the New York Times reported on the 14th that the report, funded by the federal government's National Institute on Drug Abuse and administered by the University of Michigan, found that 22.9% of high school students said they used marijuana in the past 30 days and 16.6% Only 9.7% smoked cigarettes using Vapi ng.
The survey includes 43,703 grade 8, 10 and 12 students at public and private schools throughout the country. The study found that the consumption of young people's alcohol, tobacco, prescription opioids and stimulants dropped or remained steady over the previous year, the lowest level in 20 years. In contrast, the use of cannabis has been basically the same in recent years with occasional minor changes. However, other studies show that young marijuana use rates have risen in the past decade.
