Young gay men are much more likely than straight men to take drugs, including ecstasy, cocaine and marijuana, according to two studies in Britain and America.
Nearly one-third of men surveyed in the United States who had sex with other men said they used drugs at least once a week, and lifetime use of cocaine was nearly twice as high as that of the general age-group. Two out of three of the men said that they had used drugs in the previous six months.
The study, published in the American Journal of Public Health, included 3,492 young men aged between 15 and 22.
Opinions? Why are gays so likely to use drugs?

If the study said gay people were less likely to use drugs than straight people, you wouldn't be complaining. Researchers also study interesting things like "Does drinking spur casual sex in college students?" It's a study. It's not discrimination.

Homophobes will twist anything to get the results they want.
When you disagree, call people names. NICE. You must be racist! LOL
