Black Teens Less Likely to Abuse Prescription Drugs
A recent study found that African-American youth are less likely to abuse prescription drugs. Only 0.9 percent of Black youth in the survey misused these types of drugs compared to 3.4 percent and 2.9 percent of white and Latino youth, writes Science Daily. Researchers also found that Black youth may drink less because they are more influenced by their parents’ disapproval compared to white teens.
