Survey Data Shows Where Teens Get Drugs

>> Monday, January 25, 2010

According to the 2009 Monitoring the Future survey of 12th graders by University of Michigan, 18.6 percent of the respondents who misused or abused prescription drugs took them from a friend or relative. More than half (51.1 percent) were given prescription drugs. Another 33.6 percent bought them. Emptying our medicine cabinets of expired and unused drugs is just one way to ensure prescription drugs don't end up in the wrong hands.

Empty your medicine cabinet and drop off your unused and expired drugs during Operation Medicine Cabinet on Feb. 20 at the Las Vegas Sports Center.
