Fewer teens are receiving public health messages about the risks of substance abuse, and more teens are reporting they perceive little harm in use of marijuana or other drugs, according to a pair of reports from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Each year, as part of the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, funded by SAMHSA, a nationally representative sample of teens aged 12 to 17 years is surveyed about drug use and their perceptions about such use. Results from the 2011 survey suggest that fewer teens are getting messages about the risks of drug use from the media than 10 years ago. According to the results, the proportion of teens reporting getting drug or alcohol use prevention information from the media decreased from about 83% in 2002 to about 75% in 2011 (http://tinyurl.com/avmsckw).
