Study: Marijuana Use Up Among Teens
More teens are getting high, says a new study. Researchers from the National Institute on Drug Abuse found that “more than 12 percent of eighth graders and 36 percent of seniors at public and private schools around the country said they had smoked marijuana in the past year,” according to the New York Times. Also, 60 percent of high school students don’t think that weed is harmful.
