More American Teens Smoke Marijuana Than Cigarettes - Monitoring the Future Survey


___________________________________________________________________________

More high school seniors this year used marijuana than smoked cigarettes in the past 30 days, according to government data released Tuesday.

In addition, daily marijuana use increased significantly among eighth-, 10th- and 12th-graders, with about one in 16 high school seniors using marijuana daily or near-daily, the annual "Monitoring the Future Survey" found.

Teens in all three grades exhibited more favorable attitudes toward the drug, according to the national survey of more than 46,000 teens.

Marijuana wasn't the only drug that teens increasingly used this year, the survey found. Ecstasy use rose in all three grades, with significant increases among eighth- and 10th-graders. The younger teens may not remember stories about casualties related to Ecstasy, whose use peaked in 2001 and then dropped sharply for about four years, Johnston said.

Use of narcotics other than heroin hasn't changed significantly since 2004, when 9.5% of 12th-graders had used the drugs in the previous year - nearly three times as many as in 1992. Injecting heroin with a needle showed a small but statistically significant increase in 2010
