Federal grants are going to as many as 24 Vermont communities to fight drug and alcohol abuse.

The money totals more than $9 million. It will help expand existing programs designed to help young people cut their use of alcohol and marijuana.

The state Health Department says Vermont leads the nation in marijuana use among people 18 to 25-years-old.

Governor Jim Douglas says he thinks the money will be a big help in preventing addiction.
