American teenagers are smoking less, according to a new government report. The report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) found current cigarette smoking among teenagers declined significantly between 2002 and 2010 in 41 states. Nationwide, teen cigarette use fell from 12.6 percent to 8.7 percent, UPI reports. http://www.samhsa.gov/data/2k12/NSDUH112/SR112StateEstAdolCigUse2012.pdf.
