1. 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.

    Abstract
    We used data from 3064 respondents to the 1990 North Carolina Youth Risk Behavior Survey to examine the relationship between adolescent drug use and suicide ideation and behavior. Principal components analysis followed by varimax rotation was performed separately on the drug use and suicide items. Correlation coefficients computed between the two sets of factor scores and comparison of mean drug use factor scores revealed that drug use, particularly of crack/cocaine, was related to increased suicide ideation and behavior.
