CDC Report: Marijuana Vs. Cigarettes
A CDC survey shows more teens are now smoking pot than cigarettes.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Thursday that
23 percent of high school students said they recently smoked marijuana, while 18 percent said they had puffed cigarettes.
For decades, the number of teens who smoke has been on the decline. Marijuana use on the other hand has recently risen, last year marking the first time marijuana use was clearly greater than cigarettes.
A Michigan expert said teens today apparently see marijuana as less dangerous than cigarettes.
