27% of teenagers say they’ve smoked pot in the last month, according to a new survey by the partnership at drugfree.org. Nearly one-in-ten saying they smoke at least 20 times a month.¬†Both figures up from the last survey in 2008.

This one finds, one-in-ten teens taking prescription pain meds, that’s fewer than before, with use of harder drugs like cocaine and¬†methamphetamines, levelling off.

The survey, anonymous, taken by 3,300 kids last summer.
