BROWN BAG
SERIES
A Multinomial Approach of Drugs, Violent Crimes and
the Disproportionate Minority Contact of African
Americans in the Juvenile Justice System
Ayodeji Daramola & Solomon Osho, Prairie View A&M
University
Research has shown a strong correlation between drugs,
that is, drug use and drug trafficking, and delinquency. In
addition, research has also shown that drug use tends to
peak in late adolescence and the onset of early adulthood.
Consequently, the high school years, especially, the 12th
grade is an important transition in the life course of
delinquents. This study used descriptive statistics and
logistic regression to find the relationship between drug
use, drug trafficking, violent crimes and arrests among
African American, White, and Hispanic 12th graders. The
secondary data used in this study was downloaded from
Monitoring the Future (MTF) 2010 Surveys.
