Study: Fewer Arizona teens smoking pot since medical marijuana legalization

Fewer Arizona teens are trying marijuana since the state legalized the drug for medical uses, a study published recently by the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission revealed.

In all, the study (PDF) found that 28.7 percent of students surveyed by the commission admitted to using marijuana at least once. The figure represents a minor drop from 29.9 percent in 2010.

Medical marijuana legalization took effect in Arizona in 2011.
