Here is a look into the Data

To best understand youth substance use in Aurora, we collected quantitative and qualitative data relating to youth use of marijuana, alcohol and misuse of prescription drugs. We looked at the Healthy Kids Colorado Surveydata from the Aurora Police Department, Aurora Public Schools, Colorado Department of Transportation, and others (see full list of sources here).

Here's a look at the results:
