Drug abuse

One of the big problems in the world is drug abuse. 75% of high schoolers have used an addictive substance. Teen substance abuse is a health problem in the nation and it is shown that it can lead to further problems such as bad health, anxiety, criminal involvement and poor academic performance. In a CASA report shows that one in four Americans who start using a substance before they’re 18, are much more likely to be addicted. To raise awareness schools should host events to makes teens more aware of the dangers of doing drugs. “The problem is not that we don’t know what to do, it’s that we are failing to act,” noted Foster.
