Teen Drinking, Smoking Higher Among Facebook Users Topic of Today’s Kids At Risk

A new study out shows that U.S. teens who use social networking sites and watch “suggestive” TV shows are more likely to use drugs and alcohol than teens with little exposure to such media, a new survey found.

The survey included more than 1,000 youths from around the nation aged 12 to 17 and about half of their parents. On a typical day, about 70 percent of teens said they used social networking sites.

Social network users were five times more likely to report using tobacco (10 percent versus 2 percent), three times more likely to say they used alcohol (26 percent versus 9 percent) and twice as likely to admit using marijuana (13 percent versus 7 percent).
