### HideShow timer Statistics

The harmful effects of marijuana and other drugs have been considerably overstated. Although parents and teachers have expressed much concerns over the dangers that widespread usage of marijuana and other drugs pose for high school and junior high school students, a national survey of 5.000 students of ages 13 to 17 showed that fewer than 15% of those students thought such drug use was likely to be harmful.

Which of the following is the strongest criticism of the author's reasoning ?

A. The opinions of the students in the group surveyed are likely to vary with age
B. Alcohol use among students of age 13 to 17 is on the rise, and is now considered by many to present greater dangers than marijuana usage
C. Marijuana and other drugs may be harmful to users even though the users themselves are not aware of the dangers
D. A distinction must be drawn between victimless crimes and crimes in which an innocent person is likely to be involved
E. The fact that a student does not think a drug is harmful does not necessarily mean he will use it
