The study describes the phenomenology of psychoactive substances use in a sample of 2095 adolescents (age between 13 and 17 years) surveyed in four Italian regions, divided into three different types: natives (born in Italy to Italian parents), non-natives (born abroad), second generation (born in Italy with at least one parent born abroad). The results, on one hand document the increasing consumption of psychoactive substances among minors and a cultural adaptation in this particular age group, as evidenced by the high proportion of those who were present in consumption situations or who have been offered; on the other hand show a particular subpopulation of young people born in Italy with at least one parent not native, which it should be noted for particular lifestyles associated with the use of illegal substances. It is a new and little-known aspect of Italian multicultural society constantly moving, to investigate with more targeted searches, which draws the attention, as well as consumption models based on individual choices, also to structural factors connected to specific social positions.
