ASF: Indiana teens more likely to use drugs

In Design, IDS on January 19, 2011 at 9:42 am

Thank you, Danielle Rindler and Jessica Contrera, for putting together the ASF on the front page of the IDS today.

I really liked the figures below the chart (6 percent and 10 percent) that sum up the findings. The whole package (including Michael Auslen’s story) gives readers some interesting information. Here’s a closer look at the chart.

One question: This story ran right below a story about a student death. The IDS hasn’t reported how this student died, but other sources (and people writing in the comments section) say it was from drugs. Was it appropriate to run this ASF/story package about drugs and alcohol below a story about a student death (likely from a drug overdose)?
