Marijuana use among youth remains stable, despite low perceived risk
February 18, 2016 | Emily Taylor
A recent national study found that although the majority of youth in the U.S. do not consider marijuana use to be a significant risk, marijuana use rates among youth have remained stable. The study results found that in 2013 to 2014, approximately 75% of adolescents did not believe using marijuana posed a significant risk, and about 1.8 million U.S. teens were “past-month” marijuana users.
