PORT TOWNSEND — Teen-agers in Jefferson County don’t think their parents take drug use seriously.
That is one finding of the recently published Student Survey of Risk and Protective Factors.
Jefferson County eighth-grade and 10th-grade students completed the survey.
Forty-five percent of teen-agers across the state believe people around them have favorable attitudes toward drugs; 53 percent of Jefferson County teens have that belief.
The survey results make the effort against drug use that much more daunting for Jeff Soder, Prevention Specialist with the Jefferson County Health Department.This full report appears in the weekend Jefferson County Edition of the Peninsula Daily News, now on sale.
