Booze, ciggies and grass down in Aussie adolescents
Kids from Victoria, WA and Queensland have been drinking and smoking less since 1999, say Aussie researchers reviewing self-reported data from around 41,000 adolescents between 1999 and 2015. The team suggest that these reductions were linked to similar reductions in positive parental attitudes towards the drugs, and less availability of the drugs to the kids.
