Document Number: 6645Monitoring the Future National Results on Adolescent Drug Use - Drug use among adolescents remains a top public concern, in addition to a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. This report presents the first results from a 2004 nationwide survey of nearly 50,000 8th-, 10th- and 12th-grade students, examining frequency of drug use by specific drug and by grade level, as well as examining trends in use. Also available online is the full-length report in two parts, Volume I, dealing specifically with secondary students; Volume II, which deals with college students and adults age 19-45; and Demographic Subgroup Trends for Various Licit and Illicit Drugs 1975-2004, that serves a supplement for Volume I by providing figures that graphically display the cross-time trends for the various demographic subgroups.
