NANCY REAGAN: HAS ANYONE OFFERED YOU MARIJUANA OR ANYTHING?
In the mid eighties Nancy Reagan helped launch a media blitz to combat teen drug use.
The Message was Just Say No to Drugs.
But more than ten years later, is a new generation hearing a different message?
STUDENT:IF YOU DON'T DO DRUGS YOU'RE NOT COOL.

STUDENT:IT IS MORE THE IN THING TO USE DRUGS AND YOUR UNCOOL IF YOU DON'T.
JODI WIDENER: IT IS COOL TO DO DRUGS, IT IS COOL IS WHAT THEY SAY,

Jodi Widener is 17 years old and just beginning treatment for a drug addiction that included marijuana, acid and speed,
She says it all started with alcohol and a need to fit in. JODI: I FELT LIKE IF I DIDN'T DO IT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE WAS THAT NO ONE WAS GOING TO LIKE ME, AND I THINK IT'S A LOT LIKE THAT FOR TEENS TODAY.
And the pressure is not just from peers,

Some of today's teen role models are rock groups whose members have been linked to drug use,-- and feature films like the controversial "Trainspotting," are sending mixed messages. MOST RAPPERS, OR ANY OTHER SINGER, SAYING DRUGS ARE COOL TO DO IT.
Two new studies also offer alarming insight.
One was a government Study that found ten point six percent of teens using drugs monthly, up from 8.2 in 1994.
The other study, conducted by the National Parents' Resource Institute showed teen drug use at 18.3 percent, up from 10.6 percent in 1987.
MARGIE TWIGG/ADOLESCENT THERAPIST :I WORK HERE IN ROANOKE AND EVERY SCHOOL IN OUR ARE AS FAR AS 100 MILE RADIUS, MIDDLE SCHOOL, JUNIOR HIGH AND HIGH SCHOOL HAVE DRUGS IN THEM. JODI WIDENER:
THEY'RE EASIER TO GET A HOLD OF AND MORE PEOPLE ARE DOING IT, I HAVE A LOT OF FRIENDS WHO ARE DRUG ADDICTS.

The PRIDE survey also showed another shocking trend. Fewer students than ever said their parents warned them about drug and alcohol use.
Students say most of their drug education is taught here by their teachers. LISA CHILDRESS: I THINK WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS TO EDUCATE PARENTS ON WHAT IS REALLY OUT THERE AND WHAT THEIR KIDS ARE FACING, BECAUSE SOMETIMES I'M NOT SURE THEY KNOW. JODI WIDENER: KIDS ARE DOING DRUGS, AND IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU'RE KID DOES NOT COME HOMES, SMELLING LIKE WEED OR ANYONE OTHER KIND OF ALCOHOL THEY SHOULD TALK TO THEIR KIDS ABOUT NOT DOING DRUGS AT AN EARLY AGE.
