Would like these measures:
Age of onset
Frequency of use (past 30 days)
Perception of risk or harm
Perception of parent disapproval

Concerning Trends in Teen Prescription Drug Abuse According to the New PATS Data (2008-2012) - http://www.drugfree.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/PATS-2012-KEY-FINDINGS.pdf

One in four teens (24 percent) reports having misused or abused a prescription drug at least once in their lifetime (up from 18 percent in 2008 to 24 percent in 2012), which translates to about 5 million teens. That is a 33 percent increase over a five-year period.
Of those kids who said they abused Rx medications, one in five (20 percent) has done so before age 14.
More than a quarter of teens (27 percent) mistakenly believe that misusing and abusing prescription drugs is safer than using street drugs.
One-third of teens (33 percent) say they believe “it’s okay to use prescription drugs that were not prescribed to them to deal with an injury, illness or physical pain.”
Almost one in four teens (23 percent) say their parents don’t care as much if they are caught using Rx drugs without a doctor’s prescription, compared to getting caught with illegal drugs.
Good Morning Alice -

I read through your e-mails with David and for your cause, what most coalitions use is our small boxes. These get the idea of locking up medications across to people and it's more cost effective for you. I worked up a quote for you and I was able to give you a few discounts. I did 10% off our product and 30% off shipping. This would bring you to $90.16. If you would like, I can send you over a formal Quote.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

I look forward to hearing from you!
