Meth Use Among U.S. Youth Higher Than Expected
FRIDAY, June 15 (HealthDay News) -- More American youth may be abusing crystal methamphetamine than was previously known, a new study finds.

"This new information gives us a clearer picture of use among young adults and also raises new concerns," U.S.
National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Elias A. Zerhouni said in a prepared statement. "Use of crystal methamphetamine is associated with multiple health and social risks, including a negative impact on families, as well as straining emergency departments and law enforcement resources."

The study, published in the July issue of the journal Addiction, was funded by the U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the NIH.
