Oetting, E. R.; Beauvais, Fred
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v58 n4 p385-94 Aug 1990
Reviews current data on adolescent drug use, noting that, for drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, and stimulants, lifetime prevalence continues to increase through high school; for inhalants and heroin, lifetime prevalence may decline, suggesting that students who use these drugs early may drop out. Examines drug use among rural, barrio, ghetto, Native Americans, Blacks, Whites, and Hispanic adolescents. (Author/NB)
