Survey results: Only 1 in 125 Holliston parents thinks their high school underclassman is using marijuana
Parents of Holliston teens underestimate the level of marijuana use among high school students by a significant margin, according to the results of a survey conducted by the Holliston Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Initiative.
Among parents of students in grades 9 and 10, only 0.8 percent thought their children used marijuana. According to data collected by the school in 2006, 18.5 percent of students in those grades use the drug.
Among eleventh and twelfth graders, 15 percent of parents thought their children used marijuana, while 30.5 percent of those students reported actually doing so.
