Teenage Drug Use

Module 01 Assignment: Teenage Drug Use

Teenagers often assume that drug use by other teenagers is extremely prevalent. A survey of high school seniors identified alcohol use rates as extremely high. The use of other drugs varies considerably. To learn whether teenagers have an accurate perception of teenage drug use, ask teenagers (friends, neighbors, and relatives) what they think are the percentages of teenagers using the drugs listed in Table 1-1 of the textbook. Then share the figures indicated from the survey of high school seniors and write down the reaction of those teenagers you asked. Summarize your findings in an electronic Word document (2-3 pages, double-spaced) to be submitted in Blackboard under the Assignments Icon.
