National Institute on Drug Abuse. NIH’s 2017 Monitoring the Future survey shows both vaping and marijuana are more popular than traditional cigarettes or pain reliever misuse. (December 14, 2017). Data from the 2017 Monitoring the Future (MTF) survey of eighth, 10th and 12th graders in schools nationwide suggest that in the past year marijuana use is up slightly to 23.9%, from 22.6% last year, but similar to 2015 rates (23.7%). The 2017 survey also confirms the recent trend that daily marijuana use has become as, or more, popular than daily cigarette smoking among teens, representing a dramatic flip in use between these two drugs since the survey began in 1975. https://d14rmgtrwzf5a.cloudfront.net/sites/default...
