Abstract: Brief article on substance abuse rates by Hispanic teens. This population is more likely to use drugs (primarily marijuana and prescription drugs) than other teens. Of particular concern is the increasing use of prescription drugs, which has nearly doubled since 2007. By adulthood, drug use rates have declined, and Hisanpic adults are less likely to use illicit drugs than other adults -- but still more likely to binge drink.

Abstract: El estudio examinó los patrones de uso de marihuana y tabaco entre adolescentes y adultos jóvenes hispanoamericanos y afroamericanos. Se encontraron seis trayectorias básicas de uso, incluyendo varias combinaciones de aparición tardía, experimentales, infrecuentes crónicos, no experimental y patrones de maduración externa. Diversos patrones se asociaron con diferentes antecedentes y resultados psicológicos.///Study examined patterns of marijuana and tobacco youth among Hispanic-American and African-American adolescents and young adults. Six basic trajectories of use were found, including various combinations of late onset, experimental, infrequent chronic, non-experimental, and maturing-out patterns. Different patterns were associated with different psychological backgrounds and outcomes.

Abstract: El estudio examinó factores de riesgo y protección para el uso de marihuana entre un grupo de jóvenes puertorriqueños y afroamericanos que vivían en la ciudad de Nueva York. Los sujetos fueron entrevistados a intervalos de 5 años aproximadamente entre los 14 y 29 años, y los factores de riesgo/protección evaluados incluyeron aquellos relacionados con atributos de personalidad, familia, compañeros, trabajo, vecindario y uso de sustancias. Los factores de riesgo encontrados que aumentan las probabilidades de un trastorno de uso de cannabis incluye problemas psicológicos, las discusiones con un cónyuge o pareja, altos niveles de delincuencia y ser víctima de violencia. Mediante la reducción de factores de riesgo, concluyen los investigadores, también se puede reducir la incidencia de trastornos de uso de cannabis.///Study examined risk and protective factors for marijuana use among a group of Puerto Rican and African-American young adults living in New York City. Subjects were survyed at roughly 5 year intervals between ages 14 and 29, and risk/protective factors assessed included those related to personality attributes, family, peers, work, neighborhood, and substance use. Risk factors found to increase the odds of a cannabis use disorder included psychological problems, arguments with a spouse or partner, high levels of deviance, and being a victim of violence. By reducing risk factors, researchers conclude, the incidence of cannabis use disorders may also be reduced.

Abstract: Este estudio examinó los patrones de uso y los efectos físico/Psicológicos del uso de los cannabinoides sintéticos entre una pequeña muestra mayormente de adolescentes masculinos hispanoamericano. Estas drogas sintéticas, comúnmente comercializadas como 'Spice' y 'K2' se han vuelto populares en los últimos años porque son difíciles de detectar con protocolos estándares de la prueba de drogas y eran, al menos inicialmente, legales. Los sujetos de este estudio eran en su mayoría usuarios regulares y todos estaban en tratamiento para la adicción. La mayoría utiliza también otras drogas ilícitas o alcohol. Efectos negativos registrados después del uso incluyeron cambios de memoria, irritabilidad, paranoia y cambios en la percepción visual. Efectos físicos secundarios incluyen palpitaciones, temblores y debilidad. (El primer enlace da acceso al resumen solamente.

These synthetic drugs, commonly marketed as 'Spice' and 'K2' have become popular in recent years because they are difficult to detect with standard drug-testing protocols, and were, at least initially, legal. The subjects of this study were mostly regular users and all were in treatment for addiction. Most used other illicit drugs and/or alcohol as well. Negative effects reported after use included memory changes, irritability, paranoia and changes in visual perception. Physical side effects included heart palpitations, trembling and weakness.

Abstract: Este estudio longitudinal examinó los patrones de uso de marihuana entre una población de mujeres afroamericanas y portorriqueñas. 475 sujetos fueron encuestados 5 veces durante un período de 18 años, desde la adolescencia (14 años de edad promedio) hasta la edad adulta (edad promedio 32 años). Los datos fueron recogidos como parte de un estudio más amplio sobre el uso del tabaco. A los sujetos se les preguntó sobre el uso actual y pasado de la marihuana y sobre otros factores, incluyendo los síntomas depresivos, comportamientos de riesgo e iras. Basado en sus patrones de consumo de marihuana, los sujetos fueron puestos en 3 grupos; No usuarios (quienes habían utilizado nunca o rara vez), los aumentadores (aquellos que continuaron usando en tasas c recientes en la edad adulta) y desertores (aquellos que utilizan hasta la adolescencia, luego detienen o disminuyen agudamente el uso en la edad adulta. Durante la edad adulta, los aumentadores reportaron mayores niveles de depresión e ira que los no usuarios y los que dejaron de fumar y también tenían más probabilidades de informar trastornos de consumo de otras sustancias. Esto indica una fuerte correlación entre el consumo de marihuana y pobre ajuste psicológico, aunque no está claro si el consumo de marihuana provoca el pobre ajuste o si hay otros factores involucrados.///This longitudinal study examined marijuana use patterns among a population of African-American and Puerto Rican women. 475 subjects were surveyed 5 times over an 18 year period, from adolescence (average age 14 years) through adulthood (average age 32 years.) Data was collected as part of a larger study on tobacco use. Subjects were asked about current and past marijuana use, and about other factors, including depressive symptoms, risk-taking behaviors and angers. Based on their patterns of marijuana use, subjects were put into 3 groups; non-users (those who had never or rarely used), increasers (those who continued to use at increasing rates into adulthood) and quitters (those who used through adolescence, then stopped or sharply decreased use in adulthood. During adulthood, increasers reported higher levels of despression and anger than non-users and quitters, and were also more likely to report other substance use disorders. This indicates a strong correlation between marijuana use and poor psychological adjustment, though it is unclear if marijuana use causes the poor adjustment or if there are other factors involved.

Abstract: This longitudinal study of pregnant African-American and Latina adolescents examined how substance use patterns changed over the course of the pregnancy and in the early months of parenthood. Data was taken from a larger study focusing on HIV prevention and was collected at 4 points during the pregnancy and post-partum period. Subjects were asked about past use of cigarettes, alcohol and marijuana, current use at every stage of data collection, and the use of hard drugs by boyfriends. They were also asked questions assessing self-esteem, religiosity, depression, and acculturation. Self-reported substance use rates were very low throughout the pregnancies, with 2-4% of subjects reporting current use of any substance. Past use, however, was common, and use rates increased after the babies were born. Mothers who had previously used substances, who had a partner/boyfriend who used, or who had a history of child abuse were more likely to begin/return to use after giving birth. Study emphasizes the importance of continued support and education for these young women, and researchers suggest that appealing to maternal feelings of protectiveness may be an effective tool.

Abstract: Article summarizes recent research (published in Journal of Studies on Drugs and Alcohol) finding the Hispanic-American adolescents are significantly more likely than their non-Hispanic peers to use alcohol, tobacco or marijuana. Writers suggest that the increase in the Hispanic-American population may, therefore, be largely responsible for overall increases of substance use by young teens. The study surveyed about 6,500 California middle school students.

Abstract: This DVD-based curriculum for upper-elementary students has both English and Spanish language sound-tracks, but the print materials are in English only. The DVD consists of 3 separate chapters. The first part deals with refusal skills. Young adolescents are shown in a variety of situations in which they have to refuse to use the drugs offered to them by friends. The viewer already knows about the dangers of ATOD use, but it takes self-confidence to say 'no' in an assertive way that does not offend or anger the other person, and doesn't suggest uncertainty. When all else fails, the viewer is encouraged to just walk away. The segment also looks at pressure from advertising and tv; appealing ads and product placements can make alcohol and tobacco look desirable and attractive. The other two segments on the DVD offer factual information about the dangers of tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, inhalants and prescription drugs. For each drug the viewer is shown a vignette in which a young adolescent finds herself in 'the danger zone' of being offered drugs, and having to refuse them. The friend offering the drug states that it's 'safe' and 'everyone uses it'. The narrator then provides facts about the true dangers of the substance, and assures the viewer that most adolescents do NOT use drugs. The accompanying print activity guide includes games, worksheets, fact-sheets and a summary of the DVD. Este DVD basado en el currículo para los estudiantes de primaria superior tiene pistas de sonido tanto en inglés como en español, pero los materiales impresos están en inglés solamente. El DVD consta de 3 capítulos separados. La primera parte aborda habilidades de rechazo. Los Jóvenes adolescentes se presentan en una variedad de situaciones en las que tienen que negarse a usar las drogas que les ofrecen los amigos. El espectador ya conoce sobre los peligros del uso ATOD, pero se necesita confianza para decir 'no' de una manera asertiva que no ofenda o disguste a la otra persona, y no sugiera la incertidumbre. Cuando todo lo demás falla, el espectador es animado a irse. El segmento también ve la presión de la publicidad y televisión; anuncios atractivos y colocaciones de productos pueden hacer que el alcohol y el tabaco parezcan deseables y atractivos. Los otros dos segmentos del DVD ofrecen información objetiva acerca de los peligros del tabaco, alcohol, marihuana, inhalantes y drogas recetadas. Por cada medicamento al espectador se le muestra una viñeta en la que un joven adolescente se encuentra en 'la zona de peligro"" de que le ofrezcan drogas y tener que rechazarlos. El amigo ofreciendo la droga afirma que es 'seguro' y 'todo el mundo lo usa'. El narrador entonces proporciona datos acerca de los verdaderos peligros de la sustancia y asegura al espectador que la mayoría de los adolescentes no utilizan drogas. La guía de actividad impresa incluye juegos, hojas, hojas informativas y un extracto del DVD.

Abstract: Utilizando los datos de "Hispanic Health and Nutrition Evaluation Survey (HHANES)” de 1982-84 los investigadores se enfocaron en la relación entre la aculturación y el uso ilícito de drogas (marihuana y cocaína) entre los adultos hispanoamericanos (latinos). Aculturación se definió principalmente basada sobre el uso del idioma; considerando como más aculturados a los que hablaban inglés. Los investigadores también consideraron otros factores demográficos, incluyendo género, educación, estado civil y lugar de nacimiento. Todos los sujetos se autodefinieron como mexicano-americanos, puertorriqueños o cubano americanos. A todos los sujetos se les preguntó sobre el uso reciente y de por vida de la marihuana; Sólo a los sujetos menores de 45 años se les preguntó por el consumo de cocaína. Los hombres eran más propensos que las mujeres a reportar tanto el uso drogas de por vida y reciente, con aproximadamente la mitad de los hombres puertorriqueños y mexicano-americanos y 30% de cubanos norteamericanos que dijeron haber consumido marihuana. Las cifras de las mujeres fueron aproximadamente el 19%, 31% y 11% respectivamente. El consumo de cocaína fue más frecuente entre Puertorriqueños, con 40% de los hombres y 21% de las mujeres reportando el uso de toda la vida. La aculturación tuvo una influencia clara en los patrones de uso, con los sujetos nacidos en los Estados Unidos y que hablaban inglés con 5 a 8 veces más probabilidad de haber utilizado cualquiera de los fármacos que los que hablaban español o bilingües o súbditos nacidos en el extranjeros. Los autores discuten posibles razones de la fuerte influencia de la aculturación y recomiendan más investigación.///Using data from the 1982-84 Hispanic Health and Nutrition Evaluation Survey (HHANES), researchers looked at the relationship between acculturation and illicit drug use (marijuana and cocaine) among Hispanic-American adults. Acculturation was defined primarily based on preferred language use; with English speakers considered to be more acculturated. Researchers also considered other demographic factors, including gender, education, marital status and place of birth. All subjects self-identified as Mexican-American, Puerto-Rican or Cuban-American. All subjects were asked about recent and life-time use of marijuana; only subjects under age 45 were asked about cocaine use. Males were far more likely than females to report both life-time and recent drug use, with about half of Puerto-Rican and Mexican-American men and 30% of Cuban American men having used marijuana. Figures for women were about 19%, 31% and 11% respectively. Cocaine use was most frequent among Puerto Ricans, with 40% of men and 21% of women reporting lifetime use. Acculturation had a clear influence on use patterns, with U.S. born and English speaking subjects 5 to 8 times more likely to have used either drug than bilingual or Spanish speaking and/or foreign born subjects. Authors discuss possible reasons for the strong influence of acculturation, and recommend further research.
