Recent data on 9th-12th grade methamphetamine use (both lifetime and last month prevalence) are summarized. Since 1992 methamphetamine use has increased. There were no significant differences in use noted across school year. Males are more likely to use than females, although female use has also increased. Implications for research, prevention, and counseling are briefly discussed. (Contains 12 references, 5 tables, and 1 figures.) (ADT)
