Partnership for a Drug-Free America(R) Responds to 2009 Monitoring the Future Study Results
Date:12/14/2009

etamine, Marijuana Use Tilts up Slightly

The number of high school seniors reporting they used methamphetamine in the past year is now at only 1.2 percent -- the lowest since questions about methamphetamine were added to the survey in 1999, when it was reported at 4.7 percent. In addition, the proportion of 10th graders reporting that crystal meth was easy to obtain has dropped to 14 percent, down from 19.5 percent five years ago.

Monitoring the Future also found that teen marijuana use has been increasing gradually over the past two years (three years among 12th graders) following years of declining use.

"The MTF study serves as a stark reminder that the current drug culture is vastly different from when parents were teens themselves," said Pasierb. "Today's teens have gone from abusing street drugs to products they easily find at home. Communication between parents and kids is the most effective prevention tool when it comes to protecting your teen from abusing medications. Parents can make a difference, and we know that kids who report learning 'a lot' about the dangers of drug abuse at home are up to 50 percent less likely to use."

The Partnership continues to focus its efforts on motivating and empowering parents with the resources and tools they need to help protect their children from the dangers of drugs and alcohol.
