Teen drug statistics

New research reveals one in four 10th graders have smoked pot.

This comes from the national institute on drug abuse which surveyed over 25-hundred 10th grade students. 35-percent of the teens said they had drunk alcohol during the past 12 months, and 19-percent had smoked cigarettes.

 Researchers say teens who use a combination of those also show a higher rate of depression, anxiety and sleep problems.
