August 14th 2018 – The stress of school and pressures from friends might be factors that could lead them to use and become addicted to drugs and substances. “Typically […] what we’re seeing in terms of statistics is that, usually those that are addicted to drugs have started use before the age of 18,” said Alexandria Ybarra from the Positive Community Impact Coalition. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, eighth graders that were surveyed in 2017 said that 13.5 percent used marijuana. 8.9 percent used some sort of inhalants and 0.8 percent reported using crack cocaine.
