Do you know where your teenagers are?

According to this long article in Bethesda Magazine, based on interviews of 13 Montgomery County high school kids, 9 from public schools and 4 from private schools, you don't really want to know.

Your kids (and I don't mean yours; I just mean generally yours) are into alcohol big time, marijuana moderately, and sex indiscriminately. (Unless you accept Bill Clinton's definition of oral sex as not really sex.)

I suspect that there's a lot of this actually going on, but that at the same time, reports like these generally don't include kids who are serious students or religious or heavily involved in community service. There's almost certainly a lower incidence among those groups.
