(BLOOMINGTON) - Overall youth drug use by sixth through 12th graders in Indiana is down. That's according to the latest annual survey by the Indiana Prevention Resource Center at Indiana University.

While the survey shows students' cigarette smoking has either held steady or declined, the study continues to point to an increasing use of smokeless tobacco by high school students.

The survey also shows an increase in injection drug use among high school students since questions addressing this were added in 2001.

The results for the survey came from a sample of 448 schools and 152,732 students in sixth through 12th graders attending public and private schools.
