A little over 64 percent of Dickson County students surveyed in April said they have never smoked a cigarette. About 54 percent have imbibed more than just a sip of alcohol. Between 74−77 percent had not used smokeless tobacco, aka dip, snuff, etc.

About 380 local students answered questions in April about their drug use and moral aptitude in a survey implemented by Dickson County Schools and the Drug Free Dickson Coalition.

The survey polled students in sixth, eighth, 10th and 12th grades at William James and Dickson middle schools; DMS Sullivan Annex; and Creek Wood and Dickson County high schools. The students answered the questions during their computer classes.
