Persons who were not current alcohol users were less likely to have used illegal drugs in the past month (3.4 percent) than those who reported (a) current use of alcohol but did not meet the criteria for binge or heavy use (6.4 percent), (b) binge use but did not meet the criteria for heavy use (16.0 percent), or (c) heavy use of alcohol (32.6 percent).

There was a slight relationship between high rates of past year illegal drug dependence and high rates of past year cocaine use for persons aged 12 or older at the State level. Seven States ranked in the highest fifth for both measures. The relationship between low rates of past year illegal drug dependence and low rates of past year cocaine use for persons aged 12 or older at the State level was not as strong. Only three States (Hawaii, North Dakota, and South Dakota) ranked in the lowest quintile for both the measures. Interestingly, Washington, which ranked in the highest fifth for past year dependence on illegal drugs, ranked in the lowest fifth for past year use of cocaine among persons aged 12 or older .
