Average Age for Inhalant Abuse

Interesting stat from TransWorldNews in Georgia:

"Statistics reported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) shows that the average age for first use of seven dangerous drugs or illicit substances is under 21 years.

Average age of first use of inhalants such as spray paint and products for cleaning computers is 15.7 years, followed by the hallucinogen PCP at 16.3 years and marijuana at 17.4 years. Average ages for first use of LSD, cocaine, Ecstasy and heroin all fell between 19.4 years and 20.7 years."
