Nearly 1/3 of teens have tried methamphetamine

Filed under:

A recent survey found that most teenagers aren't using meth (that's the good news!) and that they strongly disapprove of taking it. But the same survey dug up troubling data: 1 in 33 kids say they've tried meth and those who use it started at an average age of 12. Not only that, but 25% of kids report that if they wanted to take meth, it would be fairly easy to get their hands on. Perhaps most troubling of all, few kids reported talking to their parents about meth, whether they were using it or not. For more about methamphetamine, visit the NIDA's website.
