This study examined initiation into drug use during grade school years in a sample of Cuban-American, Black, and White non-Hispanic students in the greater Miami, Fla, area.
Findings indicate that first use of alcohol occurs in fifth grade and cigarettes in sixth grade for all subgroups except White non-Hispanics, who peak in the fifth grade.
White non-Hispanics had the highest lifetime levels of alcohol and cigarette use.
Foreign-born Cuban Americans had a lower lifetime prevalence of alcohol and cigarette use than US-born Cuban Americans.
