Every year the Institute for Social Researchタ at the University of Michigan conducts a survey, called "Monitoring the Future: A Continuing Study of American Youth." The survey reveals the behavior and attitudes of nearly 50,000 students around the country. One dramatic finding that has emerged from the "Monitoring the Future" surveys was the decrease in illicit drug use by young Americans between about 1980 and 1992. Unfortunately however, a second dramatic finding was an increase in such use during the 1990s.
