Kids Who Like Caffeine Like Other Good Chemicals Too: Science

"New research discovers a strong link between teen consumption of high-caffeine energy drinks and use of alcohol, drugs, or cigarette smoking. Investigators found that nearly one-third of US adolescents consume high-caffeine energy drinks or 'shots.' Researchers believe the same characteristics that attract young people to consume energy drinks — such as being 'sensation-seeking or risk-oriented' — may make them more likely to use other substances as well."

So…sensation-seekers are sensation-seekers?

Or the kids who are drinking and doing drugs need large amounts of caffeine to get through school/work after partying all night. That's the only reason I ever drank energy drinks as a teenager.
