During the presentation, at approximately 10:40, the presenter states that marijuana is the most common substance used by high schoolers. Additionally, the chart following this comment supports this answer. However, this question is marked incorrect, indicating Adderall was the correct answer. This would only be accurate if the question asked for the most commonly used pharmaceutical medication, which it does not.
