Teens at Greater Risk During Spring Break

With the arrival of warmer weather, often comes spring break vacations for many high school and college students in Michigan.



I am a 15 year old high school girl. I go to Windsor High School in Windsor, Virginia. This is my first year in high school, and things are a lot different here than at the middle school. Windsor is a small town so teens usually get together and throw parties. I myself have went to a few and witnessed teens not only drinking, but smoking weed and using other substances. I am a VERY strong minded African American. I know how I am suppose to act and how my parents expect me to act. I have NEVER drunk alcohol or smoked anything. I see how my peers act when they are under the influence of these things, and its embaressing. I would never degrade myself like that for a few ours of high. I am really glad that you all put out information like this, even though most teens don't look up things like this, it is still good for teachers to be able to give handouts to their students about drinking. -Roielle
