Many Young Smokers Also Use Pot | Marijuana Use
A large percentage of young cigarette smokers also smoke marijuana, a new study finds.
The results, based primarily onِ surveys takenِ onِ the social networking site Facebook, show moreِ than 50 percent ofِ adult smokers ages 18 toِ 25 report usingِ marijuana inِ the lastِ 30 days.
That’s higher thanِ researchers thought — previous studies haveِ suggested aboutِ 35 percent ofِ young adult smokers alsoِ smoke marijuana.
Online surveys haveِ advantages overِ those based onِ face-to-face interviews andِ in thatِ participants mayِ beِ more open aboutِ their useِ ofِ illegal substances.
