Rural Adolescent Perceptions of Alcohol and Other Drug Resistance.
Jenkins, Jeanne E.
Child Study Journal, v31 n4 p211-24 2001
Used questionnaires and focus groups to examine 361 rural high schoolers' perceptions of drug resistance difficulties when offered beer, marijuana, and hard drugs. Found that drug nonusers had the widest range of explanations for resistance difficulty. Peer pressure was cited most frequently by nonusers, and seldom by heavy users. Frequent users most often cited emotional state and pleasure seeking. (Author/KB)
