American teens report alcohol & cigarettes are the most readily available drugs

Between 31% and 50% of teenagers report that they can get alcohol, cigarettes, prescription drugs to get high, or marijuana within a day or less, according to data from a 2012 national survey.  Legal and regulated alcohol and cigarettes were the most readily accessible and youth were least likely to report that they could get marijuana within a day.

These findings were provided by the Center for Substance Abuse Research.
