    I don’t think the economic standing has anything to do with it. Both sides face the peer pressure so it’s rampant among teens from any type of family.

  • Furthur says:

    What do you mean, “do you think”? This isn’t an opinion. There is a right or wrong answer. Do some research.. don’t assume.

  • iHeart. says:

    It seems like if the poor person is living out in the streets, they’re more vulnerable to get into drugs and alcohol because they’re living out in the streets. Someone who has money can commit such acts as well because of their wealth. When they do get in trouble, it’s easy for the to cover it up because they have money. Peer pressure and threats both do exsist in both factors.

    I don’t think money has that much to do with anything.

    Sure, if they’re rich they’ll have the money, but they would also have everything they wanted and would be less vaurnable.

    A poor person could have a family who supports them also.

    I would take a nutreal side, if that’s possible.

    But if you have to choose, I would choose poor. They would most likely be faced with some sort of hardship and have to have sone sort of escape. Alcohol and drugs would be their escape.

    That doesn’t mean there aren’t any rich drug addicts.

    Try to create a compare and contrast essay. That way you could tell how drugs and alcohol effect both sides. Since you asked for a side though, it’s probable not possible.

    Anyway, I hope I helped! It was kind of hard to put this into words..

    Where I live, it’s definitely more poorer teens. Richer teens are catching up but poorer teens are way too many steps ahead of them, no doubt.
