Summary

The results of a survey of over 1800 junior high and senior high school students are presented. Purposes of the survey were: (1) to obtain information about the extent of drug use and experimentation; (2) to obtain suggestions for improving Minneapolis Public Schools' health education curriculum; and (3) to pretest the drug education questionnaire which is subsequently to be used city-wide. Response indicated that: (1) 15-25% of the students have tried marihuana; (2) few students indicate regular use of harder drugs; (3) the majority of students say that most drugs are harmful; and (4) most students view both marihuana and tobacco as harmful. School classes, books, magazines, friends, T.V., and movies were given as the major source of drug information. Recommendations for the curriculum are included. (TL)
