Alcohol and Drug Use in a Suburban Sample of College and High School Students.
Tori, Christopher D.
Alcohol and drug use among high school and college students was investigated in a sample of suburban high school (N=1,274) and college (N=468) students. Alcohol consumption was very high (78%), with more than half of those using alcohol doing so on at least a weekly basis. While alcohol use was pronounced, 96% of those surveyed reported that alcohol was not a "problem" in their lives. More than half of the total sample reported the use of other drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, and amphetamines. (Author)
