College Students Like Drugs More Than Dancing

New research has found that young people who go to dance parties rate drug- taking as a higher priority than dancing.

A PhD student from Southern Cross University's Gold Coast campus, Al Marshall, conducted 40 hours of interviews with people at dance parties in Sydney to find out why they attend.

He says that 'feeling the vibe of the event' and drug-taking were among the top five reasons.

The research also found that the majority of young people who go to dance parties and who take drugs plan to be more sensible when they get older.

Mr Marshall says most of the people surveyed expected to grow-out of going to dance parties.

"People were saying 'It's something I do now, it's part of being young and free and the ability to play and express myself'," he said.

"[They said that] that stage will pass and [they'll] pass into another stage of life."
