Data from a survey of youths attending a New York City junior high school were used to examine three perspectives of their drug involvement: (1) ethnic subculture, (2) social class, and (3) social adjustment. The results support the social adjustment view, although important differences were found in the demographic, attitude, and value correlates of drug involvement for the Black Puerto Rican, and White students who were studied.
