Teens Are Experimenting with Drugs Earlier in Life
A new study suggests teenagers are getting high off pain relievers at a younger age than previously thought.
Researchers at Michigan State looked at young people between the ages of 12 and 21.
They found roughly one in 60 used prescription pain relievers to get high.
They say 16-year-olds are the most likely to try it, but more and more 13 and 14-year-olds are starting to do it.
The authors say current prevention programs aimed at high school seniors and college student might bee too little, too late.
