New Report Shows That U.S. Teens Really, Really Enjoy Smoking Weed
Remember when, back during your high school days, you’d go garage hopping to steal beer out of random peoples’ garage refrigerators? Turns out those days are over for the majority of U.S. high school teens, because a new study discovered that teenagers are more likely to smoke weed than binge drink.
According to ProjectKnow—which surveyed American high-schoolers for the study—more teens said they toked up instead of boozing over the past 30 days, with D.C. teenagers leading the country with a shocking 32 percent of them admitting to doing so.
Per ProjectKnow, here are the other results of teens from the five states with the highest percentage of weed smokers and beer binge-drinkers in the past 30 days.
Here are the five states with the highest percentage of high school students who reporting smoking marijuana in the past 30 days:
- D.C., 32.2 percent
- New Mexico, 27.8 percent
- Washington, 26.7 percent
- Connecticut, 26 percent
- Vermont 25.7 percent
Here at the five states with the highest percentage of high school students who reported binge drinking in the past 30 days:
- West Virginia, 24.4 percent
- Montana, 23.5 percent
- New Jersey, 23 percent
- Iowa, 23 percent
- Arkansas 22.9 percent
While both boozing and lighting up are illegal for the majority of high schoolers, at least smoking pot is less dangerous than drinking, so it seems U.S. teens are just smarter in their recreational activities, if you ask me!
