abstract

  • A literature review shows that despite the recent proliferation of research on the drug using-behavior of minority youth, we do not adequately understand the nature of this problem among these youth. There is a need to conduct more research to understand the patterns, prevalence, causes, and consequences of licit and illicit drug use among minority youth populations. The authors propose the development of an etiologic model and data collection approach for nature research on this population.
