Smoking among ninth graders at all-time low
Cigarette smoking and using 'snus' smokeless tobacco is at the lowest level among ninth graders since authorities began taking measurements forty years ago, according to a new report from the Swedish Council for Information on Alcohol and Other Drugs.
Tobacco use among ninth graders has dropped by four percent between 2010 and 2012. The report also finds that children whose parents smoke or do snus are more likely to do so themselves.
Fourteen thousand boys and girls participated in the study.
