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.

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

Personally I blame the parents and society.

Its kind of ironic that the Russians helped defeat themselves by buying heroin, and the U.S. is helping fund radical terrorist by buying gasoline from OPEC.
