Young Drinkers

If there is any doubt about the No. 1 drug in use by Florida teenagers, a recent poll of some 375 teens in four Polk County high schools is food for thought.

Alcohol is still the front runner, according to the Polk County Health Center in a story published by the Polk County Democrat. More than half the students said they drank. Only 19% said they used other drugs. On alcoholic beverages, 32 said they drank regularly; 156, occasionally; 166, never.
