“Molly” Sold at Music Festivals Often Contains Other Drugs
People who think they are buying “Molly” at music festivals often end up with pills or powder that contain other drugs, according to a new study.
Having half-siblings increases the chance that a teenager will use drugs and have sex by age 15, according to a study presented at the American Sociological Association annual meeting.
Researchers found that teens who have a half-sibling with a different father are about 65 percent more likely to have used drugs by age 15. They are also about two-and-a-half times more likely to have had sex by that age, HealthDay reports.
“For children, [multi-partnered fertility] means having a half-sibling, but it also means, for first-born children, that they usually experienced their biological parents splitting up — if they were together at all, lived in a single mother household for some time, experienced their mother finding a new partner at least once and perhaps lived with a stepfather, and finally experienced their mother having a baby with a new partner,” researcher Karen Benjamin Guzzo of Bowling Green State University explained in a news release.
