Drug War - Demand: 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: Summary of National Findings

This report provides the latest hard data on demand for illegal drugs in the U.S. "Drug abuse in the United States is on the uptick overall, though use of “harder drugs” seems to be down, according to a recent study by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Marijuana use has increased some 20 percent over the last four years, particularly among young people. Today more than one in five Americans aged 18-25 get high on a regular basis. On the other hand, rates of methamphetamine and cocaine abuse have been steadily declining since 2006."
