A new study has identified the ages at which adolescents are most likely to try the drug, which may have implications for current marijuana intervention programs.
Adolescents are at risk of trying marijuana from the age of 11, new research finds.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), last year, around 6.5% of eighth-grade students, 14.8% of 10th-graders, and 21.3% of 12th-graders reported current marijuana use. Among 12th-graders, 6% reported using the drug daily.
