A Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration analysis released on Friday found that 9.1% of U.S. parents did not talk with their teens about the health risks associated with the use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs in the past year. More than 1 in 5 parents said they have little impact on whether their teens would use drugs. However, polls have found that teens who think their parents would greatly disapprove were less likely to use drugs, SAMHSA's Peter Delany said.
