This 'Teen Drugs' infographic, likely intended for parents, compares and contrasts youth substance abuse over the years and throughout different locations.

Developed with substantial information from the University of Michigan, this somewhat chronological chart is full of comprehensive information which clearly illustrates the state of drugs in the lives of today's teens. Unlike most drug-related stats, this content brings good news and highlights the fact that far less party drugs, alcohol and tobacco are being used compared to the 90s. The chart itself is exceptionally well-organized and clearly illustrates its point with attractive graphics and minimal text. In addition to comparing the information in terms of changes over the years, the chart also details the differences between these trends in the USA and Europe.

Thorough, enlightening and full of fairly important information, this piece is encouraging and loaded with data.
