More US teens smoke pot than cigarettes


A government survey shows more teens are now smoking pot than cigarettes. 23 percent of high school students said they recently smoked marijuana, while 18 percent said they had puffed cigarettes, reported the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Pot and cigarette smoking used to be the same level, but last year marked the first time marijuana use was clearly greater. An earlier survey by the University of Michigan also found that pot smoking was higher. A Michigan expert said teens today apparently see marijuana as less dangerous than cigarettes.
