Teens Abusing Drugs

This study doesn't say what drugs they are using, but more 8th graders are using drugs. Who would give a 13 year old drugs? That's so wrong. It just makes me mad. Are their parents on drugs? If more youth are living in poverty, how are they paying for drugs? It's just not right.

FROM NBC: The teen birth rate declined for the second straight year -- but more and more middle schoolers are turning to drugs. Those findings are from a new federal report on the well-being of the nation's youth.

The report also shows premature births were down slightly... along with fewer high school seniors binge drinking. But a higher proportion of 8th graders used illegal drugs -- from 8-percent in 2009 to 10-percent last year. and the percentage of kids and teens living in poverty rose from 19-percent in 2008 to 21-percent in 2009. One other interesting finding -- the average math score for 8th and 12th graders rose by at least 2 points.
