Inhalant Abuse Among Grade Schoolers

PR Newswire reports (7 January 2005) that the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) hosted a meeting in January to draw attention to the latest research about inhalant abuse.  According to the 2004 Monitoring the Future (MTF) survey of 8th, 10th, and 12th graders, lifetime inhalant use for 8th graders increased significantly in the past year with more than 17% reporting having purposely inhaled potentially toxic vapors often found in common household products.
