Oh come off it...

Today's scarcely credible research finding comes from the Partnership for a Drug Free America (Doubtless Pfizer, Glaxo, Novartis etc are a little concerned as to what a DFA would do to their business models, but less of that later), which polled teenagers for its 2007 (a bit late, people) Partnership Attitude Tracking Study.

And what is the number one (73%) response to the question, 'why do kids take drugs?'

'to deal with the pressures and stress of school'.

Obviously.

Rather more likely to pass the smell test are “feeling cool” (65 percent) and “feeling better about themselves” (65 percent).

Lots more here, including figures on misuse of cough syrup - 10% of teenagers like nothing better than getting bombed on Benylin. Yes, really.
