The biggest influence here is peer pressure and is the cause of many teen problems and has for many, many years and will into the future. Teens want to "fit" in with others so they'll do just about anything to do so as majority of teens are easily led astray and have low self esteem so they are eager to fit in and usually never think about the consequences of their actions as long as they are accepted. Unfortunately so many teens have died or gotten into huge legal problems  and almost all regret their actions later in life
