Alcohol consumption by youth in Spokane County
February 28, 2011 Leave a comment
Just under 1 in 3 Spokane County area high school seniors drank heavily in the past 2 weeks and just under 1 in 5 area high school sophomores drank heavily in the past 2 weeks. No idea if this is better or worse than elsewhere. Youth alcohol consumption is big problem most everywhere. I looked this up because someone asked me about it.
43% of high school seniors and one third of sophomores have been drinking in the past month.
