    Article - En anglais


    A public-school-based epidemiological survey of fourth-grade students in Washington, DC, was performed in 1988/89 (n=4675) and 1990/91 (n=4678).

    Comparisons of data for the two periods revealed that the lifetime prevalence of self-reported alcohol use, alcohol use without parental knowledge, and smoking more than a puff of cigarettes declined; marijuana use and cigarette experimentation did not.

    Seven variables were associated with use.

    Declines were observed in perceived peer pressure to use; seeing a family member/friend selling drugs; and being offered alcohol, cigarettes, or marijuana by peers.
