The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is releasing its revised 2012 survey, "Monitoring the Future," which questioned 46,733 students in the 8th, 10th and 12th grades about their drug use.
For the first time, the survey will also include "bath salts," a type of designer drug with amphetamine-like effects.
Nora Volkow, NIDA Director, leads today's press conference.
Other speakers include: Howard K. Koh, Assistant Secretary for Health U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; R. Gil Kerlikowske Director, Office of National Drug Control Policy; Lloyd D. Johnston, Principal Investigator, Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan; and Chris Leibowitz, young adult in recovery from drug addiction.

Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
