These days, however, teenagers and young adults are raiding their parents’ and grandparents’ medicine cabinets for anything they can throw into a bowl at a “pharm party.” Approximately 15 percent of high school seniors nationwide report using prescription drugs, particularly painkillers such as OxyContin and Vicodin, to get high, and there are more emergency room visits for prescription drugs than for marijuana and heroin combined. Today’s teenagers are earning the sobriquet, “Generation Rx.”
