Shocker: Teens Not Honest About Drug Use


Many teens won't admit to using illegal drugs, even when they know they're about to take a drug test.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, researchers had more than 400 teens complete a questionnaire about their drug use before testing them. Teens were 52 percent more likely to test positive for cocaine than they were to report using it. This discrepancy between teens' claims and the test results has been found to occur even when the results of the test are confidential.
