Adolescence is an important and vulnerable stage in the lives of all humans, during which males and females experience various social, biological, and cognitive changes. According to a study conducted by the Office of Applied Studies of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), on adolescent males and females in Georgia, approximately 15.2 percent used alcohol, 8.1 percent used an illicit drug, 8.6 percent involved in binge drinking, and 3000 adolescents required but did not receive adequate treatment for substance abuse problems. The report also stated that adolescent females were five times more likely to have undergone a major depressive episode than adolescent males. In Georgia, the level of risk perception related with marijuana use between adolescent females and adolescent males were found to be similar. The report showed that in Georgia, adolescents perceived that binge drinking once or twice a week is riskier than smoking marijuana once a month and smoking one or more packs of cigarettes per day is riskier than binge drinking once or twice a week.
