U.S. teens: let's get drunk and f...acebook...

you gotta love it. teens who use facebook are more likely than their abstinent peers to smoke and use drugs...

U.S. teens on Facebook more likely to use drugs - Health - CBC News: "American teens who spend time on Facebook and other social media sites are at increased risk of smoking, drinking and drug use, a survey suggests.

The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University conducted the back-to-school survey of 1,006 teens who answered questions about their use of social media, TV viewing habits and substance abuse.

The findings suggested that compared those aged 12 to 17 who spend no time on social networking sites in a typical day, teens who do were:

Five times more likely to use tobacco.
Three times more likely to use alcohol.
Twice as more likely to use marijuana."

i suppose they'd be fucking, too, except that facebooking is more onanistic.

well, rather than spread the genetic material of facebook users, this is a perfectly acceptable alternative.
