A great deal of research concludes that drug use is relatively similar across races for adults, and that men use more than women. The current study makes use of self-report delinquency surveys of students in a South Dakota State University Juvenile Delinquency course and a California State University, San Bernardino Juvenile Justice course to determine if these trends also apply to juveniles. The current study will examine race and gender trends as they relate to illicit substance use in juveniles.
