Monitoring the Future study finds teen drug use dropped significantly in the past year
The latest Monitoring the Future survey showed teen drug use showed an historic decline over the last year. In the Michigan Radio report, Richard Miech says the decline may be due to the pandemic and, “This is a great natural experiment. On the one hand, there is the possibility that this very large decline that we saw during the pandemic is going to lead to a life-long reduction in drug use. On the other hand, maybe it’s just a blip.”
CNN also reported on the new survey results.
