Michigan Daily Finds the Monitoring the Future Results Resonate with UM Students

Monitoring the Future logoAn article in the Michigan Daily, Monitoring the Future results show vapes replacing cigarettes, finds parallels in current students’ lives. Richard Miech says in the report, “Historically marijuana use has gone up as adolescents see less risk of harm in using it. We’ve found that the risk adolescents see in marijuana use has been steadily going down for years to the point that it is now at the lowest level we’ve seen in four decades.” A student wishing to remain anonymous echoed this, “I see marijuana as a very minimally harmful drug compared to the spectrum of other substances available, and I feel that it’s a very safe and responsible drug that can be used as such. It is dependent upon the user and one’s addictive tendencies without a doubt.”
