Interesting Facts and Statistics:
Among adults aged 26 or older, 6.1 percent reported current illegal drug use in 2006. In this age group, 4.2 percent used marijuana, and 2.2 percent used prescription-type drugs nonmedically. Less than 1 percent used cocaine (0.8 percent), hallucinogens (0.1 percent), and inhalants (0.2 percent). The only significant change between 2005 and 2006 in the rates of past month use among adults in this age group involved heroin, which increased from 0.03 to 0.14 percent. Lifetime nonmedical use of OxyContin among adults aged 26 or older increased from 0.9 percent in 2005 to 1.1 percent in 2006, and past year use of stimulants and heroin also increased (stimulants, from 0.6 to 0.9 percent; heroin, from 0.1 to 0.2 percent).
Marijuana use by teens has been proven to have an extremely negative effect on their development.
Among teens aged 12 to 17, the rate of current illegal drug use was higher for boys (11.4 percent) than for girls (10.2 percent). Although boys aged 12 to 17 had a higher rate of marijuana use than girls (8.9 vs. 7.1 percent), girls were more likely to use psychotherapeutics nonmedically than boys (3.8 vs. 2.7 percent).
Cocaine users can be from all economic status, all ages and all genders.
Among adults aged 18 or older who had MDE in the past year, 64.5 percent received treatment (i.e., saw or talked to a medical doctor or other professional or used prescription medication) for depression in the same time period, which was lower than in 2006 (69.1 percent).
A methamphetamine "crash" is commonly marked by agitated depression, and sometimes the individual will have a strong urge for more of the drug; soon these feelings give way to exhaustion and lethargy.
