Drugs & Substance Abuse

In 2012, an estimated 23.9 million Americans aged 12 and older were current (past month) illicit drug users; this represents 9.2% of the population aged 12 or older.[1] Illicit drugs include marijuana, cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens, inhalants, and prescription drugs used for non-medical purposes.
