There are new concerns this morning about marijuana and prescription drug use among teens.

A new survey finds 23 percent of high school seniors admitted to smoking pot in the last month alone. Seven percent say they smoke it every day and don't think the drug is harmful.

The report also reveals one in 12 teens take Adderall to get high. The drug is prescribed by doctors to treat people with attention deficit disorder. The study was funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
