Bad kids smoke more then good kids

Article on Time.com showing children diagnosed with ADHD are more likely to smoke then kids not diagnosed with the disorder.

In other words, kids who lack self-control and discipline are more likely to smoke then kids who have self-control and have discipline.

Is there really a big surprise there?

If a kid will not listen to the parents or teachers, what makes us think the child will listen and understand warnings about drugs?

Little Johnny, if you do not do good in school you will have problems finding a job. Little Johnny is a brat in school and does not want to do as he is told.

Little Johnny, if you do drugs you will become addicted which will lead to a life of crime. Little Johnny gets strung out on crack, then starts breaking into homes to support his drug habit.

Who do we blame? The kid, the parents, the school, society?

Personally I blame the parents and society.
