This is a great article to look into when discussing drugs, because energy drinks are consumed by many teenages not only in the United Kingdom, but also in the United States. So, if energy drinks have any type of relationship to drug use, consuming energy drinks is equivalent to taking drugs. It is possible that these teenagers could be addicted to drugs, in an indirect manner.

I think there's a strong relation between what drugs and energy drinks do for your body, but the way they accomplish the tasks is not the same.

This article addresses how the drinks that we are most influence to pick up off the shelves can lead us to much worse consequences.

Energy Drinks are most likely going to cause teens to have drugs now or when they are older. 

I think energy drinks can be good depending on the things put in the drinks. If it is content that is  usually used in drugs and put in a drink it should not be produced.

The central finding is entirely unsurprising, but the study also highlights the impact a loving parent/carer can have on preventing problematic AOD use.

Alcohol or 'booze' is widely used by teenagers. Binge drinking, drink driving and unsafe sex can all result from the misuse of alcohol. Alcohol is responsible for most drug-related deaths in the teenage population.
Gustavo Black's insight:

This article is sending the message that most Australian Teenagers from the age of 14 have tried alcahol atleast once. It goes on to say what this results in things such as Drink driving, Unsafe sex, injury or death, Impared brain development and binge drinking and driving in further years to come with use of this substance.  

 

This is a great article on this current problem in teenagers because it also offers helplines to teenagers for doctors and counselors.
