What They're Smoking

The Marijuana Policy Project notes an interesting finding from the 2003 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, the results of which were released last month: The share of teenagers who reported smoking pot in the previous month (22.4 percent) was slightly larger than the share who reported smoking cigarettes (21.9 percent). MPP calls this "striking evidence that prohibition does not work better than regulation at preventing teen substance use."
