A new study by a U-M researcher has found that a surprising number of 9 and 10-year-old children are curious about using alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana products. Meghan Martz, Ph.D., a research assistant professor specializing in the development of substance use disorders, shares insights from this first-ever study about substance use curiosity and access in this age group. The faculty expert further discusses the considerable variation by gender, race/ethnicity, and family income in many measures and how this research could help future substance use prevention efforts.
