Interesting Facts and Statistics:
During 2008, 0.7% of the 8th grade students reported using methamphetamine in the past month.
About 668,000 of these used crack.
There were no significant changes in past month use of any drugs among young adults aged 18 to 25 between 2005 and 2006. The rate of past year use increased for Ecstasy (from 3.1 to 3.8 percent) and decreased for inhalants (2.1 to 1.8 percent).
Ecstasy is man-made using chemicals and other substances such as caffeine, dextromethorphan (found in some cough syrups), amphetamines, PCP, or cocaine are sometimes added to, or substituted for Ecstasy in tablets.
In 2001, approximately 957,000 persons aged 12 or older had used Oxycontin nonmedically at least once in their lifetime. This number is higher than estimates from both 1999 (221,000) and 2000 (399,000). The NHSDA was not designed to report past month or past year use of Oxycontin.
In 2006, the MLB banned the use of amphetamine, a ban which is enforced through periodic drug-testing.
