  1. 1. Teen Substance Abuse<br />By Jim Lembke and Tyler Carr<br />
  2. 2. Doped Out!<br />Marijuana is a popular substance that is talked about a lot in high school.<br />(our collected stats)<br />
  3. 3. Kids Using Drugs Stats<br />From 2006 to 2007, the percentage of 8th graders reporting lifetime use of any illicit drug declined from 20.9% to 19.0%.Reported past year use among 8th graders declined from 14.8% to 13.2%.<br />
  4. 4. ALCOHOL!!!!!<br />59.8 % of teens have had conversations with their parents in regards to using tobacco and alcohol. <br />Http://family.samhsa.gov/talk/alcohol.aspx<br />Nearly 44 % of all high school teens surveyed have reported to have consumed alcohol. <br />26 % of teens and preteens, ages 12 to 17 have reported binge drinking with in 30 days of the survey. <br />

  6. 6. Our results <br />Of 50 studends surveyd, 40 have said yes to eitther smoking or drinking in the past or who still use. <br />4 said they used to use but found it not worth thr trouble and have not continued use<br />And 6 students have never used. <br />
  7. 7. Conclusion<br />Most of the students in our school matched the results in the national survey.<br />Differences between our study and the national one is the amount of students tested but I do think our results are accurate.<br />It does go to show how many students are beginning to expiriment.<br />
