The trinity of sex, drugs and Rock & Roll that has captivated teens for decades may be in decline.
According to the LA Times, “Teenagers today are less likely to smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol or have sex than their peers 15 years ago, according to a national study released Thursday by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“The study found that 54% of high school students last year had smoked one cigarette in their lifetime, compared with 70% in 1991. The percentage of students who had at least one alcoholic drink dropped to 74% last year from 82% in 1991.
And during the same period, students reporting at least one sexual experience declined from 54% to 47%.”
