The United States has the highest rate of teen and young adult drug abuse in the world.

Why does America have the highest rate of teen and drug abuse in the world?
I think America has the highest rate of teen and drug abuse in the World, because from all the media and what people say and act and how they express their feelings. I also feel that teens don't have their parents at home nowadays, and when they have problems they feel that drugs are the way out. My mom told me when she was in college, and working in the restaurant, the teens would all talk about all the different drugs out there, and which ones were better. They all would ask my mom to do drugs, and that it was cool, but she was always proud to say she is "drug-free". Teens like everyone else need attention, and when they don't get that at home, they get it from drugs.

What 4 things would you tell parents to do to help their teens not get involved with drugs?
Learn about drugs.
Discuss it with your teens.
Read about it with your teens.
Have your teens meet kids who are addicted, so they can see that this is not a good way to go.

"A strong positive attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug".
~Patricia Neal

"Today's students can put dope in their veins or hope in their brains. If they can conceive it and believe it, they can achieve it. They must know it is not their aptitude but their attitude that will determine their altitude".
~Jesse Jackson
