Drug Use in Today’s Classroom

On 06/07/2012

Scientific American posted five of the best infographics depicting the current trends around drug use nationwide. Last week we blogged about the fourth infographic that depicted the medical uses of abused drugs. This week’s installment is about the drug use in today’s classroom. With the visualization of this infrographic, it is easy to see that drug trends in schools are on the rise- in a major way. Studies conducted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse show that nearly half of 12th grade students tried drugs in the past, with about one-quarter actively using.
