Study suggests summertime is when more teens try smoking and drinking

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A new report suggests that summertime may be prime time for teens to start experimenting with smoking and drinking.

The U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration finds June and July are the top months of the year for teenagers to try alcohol, cigarettes and marijuana for the first time.

It may be that teens have more free time that's unsupervised during the summer.
