Survey: Most Alaska teens think drug misuse not a ‘serious risk’

Alaska teenagers are showing “concerning” opinions regarding the use of prescription and illicit drugs according to a statewide survey, even as they reduce other risky behaviors like underage sex and smoking.

The state Department of Health and Social Services released its biennial Youth Risk Behavior Survey on Wednesday, breaking down responses from more than 1,300 teens in 40 Alaska high schools on issues ranging from automotive behavior to self-esteem. The survey compares responses from males and females, as well as a number of racial groups.
