High intelligence at a young age could lead to a life of getting high illegally.

FOX's Colleen Cappon explains in today's "Housecall for Health":

A high intelligence level in childhood could increase your risk of using illegal drugs later in life.

A study published in the "Journal of Epidemiology" compared lifetime drug use with socioeconomic factors and education of nearly 8,000 people.  They found that those who had high IQ scores at the age of five were twice as likely to use ecstasy, cocaine and other illegal drugs by age 30.
