This was driven particularly by the increase in adult marijuana use, the survey suggests. The survey also found that the number of young perceiving great harm in smoking marijuana at least once a week also fell significantly.

We ask for an increased investment in substance abuse prevention programs. We know they work,” said CADCA Chairman and CEO Gen. Arthur T.
