The most recent findings of the National Institute on Drug Abuse’s MTF study show significant decreases in cigarette smoking and drinking among our nation’s adolescents. The study also reflects a decline in past year nonmedical use of prescription drugs and in synthetic marijuana use (a.k.a., “K2” or “spice”). Unfortunately, the study also reflects the continued increase in adolescent use of marijuana; results that parallel the continued decline in perceptions of harm related to marijuana use among all adolescent age groups.
