Study: Teen Smoking Down.

CQ (11/16, Adams, Subscription Publication) reports that “teen smoking nationwide fell from 12.6 percent of adolescents in 2002 to 8.7 percent in 2010,” according to an analysis released Thursday by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The SAMHSA report “included state-by-state results showing that the number of teenagers who said they smoked in the past month fell significantly in 41 states.” CQ notes that the analysis indicated that Wyoming “has the nation’s highest rate of teen smoking at 13.5 percent, which is more than double the rate of 5.9 percent for Utah, the state with the nation’s lowest rate.”
