Patterson, Scott J.
Journal of Drug Education, v24 n4 p351-61 1994
Investigates how much and what type of information college students receive from the media about drugs. Interviews were conducted with 228 students using the message discrimination protocol. Results are discussed in terms of the audience receiving fear and fight messages rather than clear, accurate information necessary to make informed decisions about drugs. (JPS)
