Listen: Young alcohol consumption
Young people continue to drink alcohol, according to a new survey from the Central Association for Alcohol and Drug Information (CAN). The decline among young people in year 9 is particularly clear.
Smoking has also continued to decrease among school children in 2021.
What is increasing, however, is snus use, especially among girls. Among high school students, 23 percent stated that they used snus in 2021. For ninth graders, that figure was 11 percent.
