Interesting Facts and Statistics:
The average retail price of an Ecstasy tablet is between $20 and $30, making it attractive and accessible to younger users.
In 2008, there were 729,000 persons aged 12 or older who had used inhalants for the first time within the past 12 months; 70.4 percent were under age 18 when they first used. There was no significant change in the number of inhalant initiates from 2007 to 2008, but the number in 2008 was significantly lower than the estimate in 2005 (877,000).
Among pregnant women aged 15 to 44, an estimated 11.8 percent reported current alcohol use, 2.9 percent reported binge drinking, and 0.7 percent reported heavy drinking. These rates were significantly lower than the rates for nonpregnant women in the same age group (53.0 percent, 23.6 percent, and 5.4 percent, respectively). Binge drinking during the first trimester of pregnancy dropped from 10.6 percent in combined 2003–2004 data to 4.6 percent in combined 2005 2006 data. All of the current estimates for pregnant women are based on data averaged over 2005 and 2006.
Female opiate users have more spontaneous abortions, breech deliveries, caesarean sections, premature births, and stillbirths.
Inhalant abuse can cause damage to nerves as it acts directly on the central nervous system.
Many Ecstasy users use mentholated products while taking the drug for its cooling sensation while experiencing Ecstasy?s effects. This can have negative effects on the upper respiratory tract.
