scientific study conducted by a college in St. Louis
in 1999. This survey showed that only 14% of the students
who received FreeWay instruction had used alcohol, tobacco,
or other drugs during the following year. In the other
"control" group of students who did not receive
FreeWay instruction, 33% of the students had used alcohol,
tobacco, or other drugs in the preceding year. Thats
