Pot use up, alcohol use down among teens, survey says

(AP) - A new national survey shows more teens are using pot, while alcohol use has dropped to historic lows.

One of every 15 high school seniors reported smoking pot on a daily or near daily basis, the highest rate since 1981.

Researchers say use of a particular drug drops when teens consider it dangerous.

The percentage of teens who see "great risk" in using marijuana generally has dropped in recent years.
