The amount of high school students who regularly smoke marijuana is significantly on the rise, while the percentage of students who see any risk from the habit has dropped dramatically.

A 2013 National Institute of Health (NIH) survey entitled "Monitoring the Future" finds that only 39.5 percent of 12th grade students view regular marijuana use as harmful – a decrease from last year's 44.1 percent. Sixty percent don't view regular marijuana use as harmful.
