Abstract

Substance use and bullying during adolescence are two prevalent problem behaviors associated with a broad array of adverse developmental outcomes. This study conducted a secondary analysis of high school data from Hillsborough County's 2014 Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey to examine the relationship between substance use, criminal activity, bullying, and other deviant behaviors. Results indicated that past-month alcohol and marijuana use were associated with driving under the influence of marijuana or alcohol, riding with a driver under the influence of marijuana or alcohol, carrying a hand gun, gambling, selling illegal drugs, and the perpetration of bullying. Implications for prevention and intervention efforts are discussed.
