Drug Use On The Decline Among US Youth

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has revealed that the use of drugs and smoking is on the decline among the youngsters in the US. There has however been an increase in the usage of prescription drugs for // non-medical purposes. The University of Michigan conducted the 2005 Monitoring the Future (MTF) survey for the NIH, and concluded that the overall results were good.

This trend is driven largely by decreasing rates of marijuana use among these students, the study contends. For example, since 2001, the past month use of marijuana has fallen by 28% among Class 8 students and by 23% among Class 10 students.
