Defense figures have revealed that more than 40 soldiers, sailors, and airmen were sacked for taking drugs in 2010-11.

Though cannabis was the most popular drug, positive tests for ecstasy, steroids, cocaine, and amphetamines were also returned.

“The rate of positive tests in the Australian Defence Force is significantly lower than in the general Australian community, and has fallen by around 80 per cent since the testing regime was introduced,” a spokesman for Defense Personnel Minister Warren Snowdon said.

  2008 Monitoring The Future study shows use of steroids and stimulants down, use of inhalants and prescription drugs up

prescription-drugs-steroidsThe 2008 Monitoring The Future study indicates that there is a downward trend in the use of certain drugs amongst America’s youths. However, there is an increase as well as indications of potential increase of illicit intake of other drugs.

First, the good news.

The good news is the long-term decline in the use of methamphetamines, a practice more pronounced among 12th graders. The MTF study shows that usage of this drug dropped by two-thirds in this bracket.

Another positive trend noted is the use of over-the-counter cold and cough medicines, prevalent practice among the 8th and 12th graders. The study indicates that there is a decline also in the use of these drugs.  Teens usually pilfer this class of drugs from their homes’ medicine cabinets to get high.

Use of anabolic steroids has also dropped. Steroid use has been continually decreasing since 2001, and since that time, the activity has dropped by one-third among 12th graders, and by half among 8th and 10th graders.

Now, the bad news.

The Partnership for Drug- Free America reacts on the troubling trends reflected on the MTF study:

…the 2008 MTF study highlights three areas of concern that should serve as a call-to-action for all parents and the substance abuse prevention field at large — strong reminders that we must not divert our attention from this critical family health issue.

First, the abuse of prescription medications continues at alarming levels. The fact that 15 percent of 12th graders report abusing a prescription drug in the past year — and that this prevalence has remained steady for several years — is a stark contrast to the progress made against illicit drugs.

The second area of concern is among eighth graders, where there has been a weakening in the perceived risk of using inhalants — household products that are sniffed to get high. In 2008, this age group also reported a lower rate of disapproval of this behavior.
Lastly, MTF indicates that the decade-long decline in marijuana use among all grades has leveled off, and among 8th and 12th graders, there is weakening in the perceived risk of using marijuana regularly.

Historically, when risk perceptions weaken, the likelihood of use increases. As such, attitudes about both marijuana and inhalant use are in potentially dangerous transition periods, and use may be poised to rise in the future. Prevention efforts, especially by parents, are warranted and encouraged to head off an unnecessary backslide.
