The Knowledge About Drugs, Attitudes Towards Them And Drug Use Rates Of High School Students
Fejer, Dianne; Smart, Reginald G.
Journal of Drug Education, 3, 4, 377-387, W 73
A survey of attitudes towards drugs, knowledge about them and the use of alcohol, tobacco, illicit and psychoactive drugs was conducted among 4,693 high school students. Knowledge level and permissive attitudes tended to increase with grade level. Knowledge scores also increased, but attitudes became less permissive with increasing academic standing. Questions were raised concerning the value of providing factual information as a method of deterring drug use. (Author/LA)
