"FORT MYERS, Fla. — New studies say teenagers are behaving better than their parents did: Fewer are drinking, smoking, doing drugs and having sex than their parents were 30 years ago.The first thought to pop in my head after reading this article was "Better than MY generation? Yeah, right. The 80's were awesome! Well, okay... Not for hair styles, but as a whole I would give the 80's a big thumbs up!"
Studies say at least 60 percent of teens were doing the same thing in 1980. Today, the number of high school students who have tried marijuana has dropped to 45.5 percent, and the declines run across the board."
