A Public School Survey in the Northern Marianas has revealed that over 41 per cent of high school students drink while under age.

The survey asked teenagers if they had consumed alcohol in the 30 days before the survey, and 41 per cent of them said they had.

This result is the highest ever recorded in the biennial survey, and the number far exceeds the US figure of 25 per cent.
