Some 20 percent of all high school seniors in the U.S. admit to using an illicit drug within the past year.

Mentor Foundation USA joined the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the Embassy of Sweden, the University of Minnesota Center for Adolescent Substance Abuse Research and the Institute for Behavior and Health in presenting the conference.

Earlier in the day, Mentor Foundation USA invited 100 D.C. high school students to the House of Sweden to interact with top U.S. scientific experts and guest speakers to shatter the myths about drugs and to pledge to stay drug free.  The guest speakers included NIDA Director Dr. Nora Volkow and R&B recording artist Mario (Barrett), of The Mario Do Right Foundation. The George Washington University Center for Alcohol/Peer Drug Educators presented workshops in a game show format, and the fashion clothing retailer H&M announced the winner of the drug free T-shirt slogan contest, which they sponsored.
