Is religion important to you? Whether you kick back a six-pack, light up a cigarette, or smoke a joint may be an indicator.
A recent study shows that among those who "strongly believe religious values are NOT important"...
71 percent of them used alcohol in the last month,
34 percent smoked tobacco, and
14 percent used marijuana.
Of those who "strongly believe religious values ARE important," only...
45 percent of them used alcohol in the last month,
22 percent of them smoked tobacco, and
2 percent toked a joint.
