Nov 9 - Black and Asian teenagers have lowest levels of drug and alcohol use

Black and Asian teens are less likely to use drugs and alcohol than their white counterparts, according to a new study.

The annual National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported that 39 percent of white teens between the ages of 12 and 17 admitted to using substances in the past year, compared to just 32 percent of blacks and 24 percent of Asians.

Topping the list of adolescent substance users are Native American youth, at an astounding 48 percent.

“What surprised us the most was the relatively lower rate of use among African Americans,” said Dan Blazer, a professor of psychiatry at Duke University Medical Center. “The public perception is that that’s not the case."

The numbers paint a very different picture than what has often been portrayed in popular media, and could point to a need to redirect national funding in drug prevention programs.

Currently, public health issues, social services, public safety and lost productivity linked to drug and alcohol abuse cost society approximately $465 billion a year, according to the study.

"There is certainly still a myth out there that black kids are more likely to have problems with drugs than white kids," Blazer told the Raleigh News & Observer, "and this documents as clearly as any study we're aware of that the rate of...substance-related disorders among African American youths is significantly lower."

Perhaps notably significant in these new findings is the shift in the kinds of drugs teens are using.

According to the study, aside from marijuana, prescription painkillers like OxyContin and Vicodin now beat out inhalants as the drug of choice among the nation's teens.

Heroin, which was viewed as "no big deal" to suburban teens in a 2010 article in Psychology Today, was reported as the drug most closely a.ssociated with addiction.

Marijuana, which is also highly addictive, was reportedly used by more than one in ten teens last year.

From my experience white kids have less of a fear of hard drugs and alcohol, mainly because the ones I see that abuse it or go hard with it come from places where lawyers and doctors and other successful people drink and sniff coke.

However, most black peoples first experiences with coke is seeing a crackhead, and with alcohol it's that drunk uncle everybody has.

So when white kids get to their teens they be like coke!? fu*k yea! where as it's almost a taboo in the black community.

Then there's also the fact that it's for all intents and purposes legal to use in white areas and not policed at all, and highly illegal and heavily policed in ethnic areas.

Unfortunately no one cares blacks will still be arrested at a much higher rate for drug related crimes and serve harsher sentences. While whites scream race card race card every time someone attempts to point out this injustice. Just another day in Amerikkka.
