Teens and drugs- it's an ongoing problem.
Now a new study shows teens who live in rural areas are more likely to use drugs than city teens.
The National Centers on Addiction and Substance Abuse did the study.
But do the results ring true for this region? Kate Weidaw talked to local counselors to find out.

(([99-40 1:03:30] The latest study on drug use is finding drugs are not just a problem in urban areas.

(( Elian Gonzalez and his Miami relatives waved the familiar victory sign at cheering demonstrators ... as they left an emotional meeting with the boy's Cuban grandmothers. It was the first time the women had seen their grandson ... since he survived a boat accident that killed his mother last November. We prayed together because somehow I did not know how the day would go. The reunion was held at the Miami Beach home of Barry University president, Sister Jeanne O'Laughlin -- an activist for immigrant causes. The Immigration and Naturalization Service ordered the meeting ... after previous attempts to bring the two sides together failed. O'Laughlin says the meeting got off to a rocky start. O'Laughlin: There was pain on both sides. There were hurts on both sides. The greatest element however was that of fear."
The grandmothers spoke to Elian in a private room -- without the presence of his Miami family ... and without the glare of the media cameras. Elian's newfound relatives press on with their fight to keep the boy here. In Washington, Elian's cousin met with Florida Senator Connie Mack. Mack and other lawmakers want Congress to pass a bill granting Elian citizenship. Georgina Cid/Elian's cousin: "We came to Washington to fight for Elian's rights and for that to be heard.
