I always doubt the kind of “facts” that you posted since there is no source. I’ve seen “facts” like that that has spread all over the internet, blogs, forums, groups, mail and so on. With no source it might as well be something that someone made up, in many cases it is, all with a good intent of course. Searching the facts you posted with Google I found them on 6 360 pages. I’ve looked through some of them (picking them randomly) and I can’t find anyone that posts a source. The list also changes from list to list sometimes there is more on the list, sometimes it’s children not teenagers and so on. It’s sad really, if the list is real and factual then it loses credibility because it lacks a source.

This site lists different statistics about teenagers and they list the sources too:

This page has a list of articles about teens and alcohol and drug abuse:
