(Undated) -- Fewer teens in the state view smoking pot as risky to their health. Preliminary results from the 2013 Healthy Kids Colorado survey show high school students who look at the drug as a moderate or great risk fell four points from 2011 to 54-percent. Meanwhile, more than a third of the state's high school students say they've used pot at some point in the lives, while one in five say they've used it in the last 30 days. State health officials say they're launching a youth prevention campaign later this month which will encourage kids not to risk damaging their growing brains by experimenting with pot.
