Last year the rates of marijuana use among teenagers fell to an alarming low.
In 2016, the rate of marijuana use in 12 to 17 year olds in the United States dropped to the lowest level in over twenty years according to federal survey data.
The National Survey on Drug Use and Health revealed that only 6.5% of adolescents used marijuana on a monthly basis.
It was the year 1994 when marijuana use was this low.
While teenagers were using marijuana less, adults were actually using it more. The federal data showed that 20.8% of adults in between the ages of 18 and 25 in the U.S. were using marijuana at least monthly.
This number was the highest since the yer 1985.
