"Fewer teens smoking cigarettes, but marijuana use rises" - Michigan Radio. 12/18/2013.

The latest data from the Monitoring the Future study show that cigarette smoking among 8th to 12th graders declined from 10.6% in 2012 to 9.6% in 2013. MTF principal investigator Lloyd Johnston says this decrease is part of a longer-term decline. "Since teen smoking reached a peak around 1996-1997, the rates of current (past 30-day) smoking have fallen by nearly 80% among 8th graders, 70% among 10th graders and over 50% among 12th graders," says Johnston. "Further, the proportional declines in daily smoking are even larger."
