We're Number One! U.S. Leader for Illegal Drug Use.

A Word Health Organization survey of 17 countries released this month ranks the U.S. highest for cocaine and marijuana use.

Some tidbits:
  • Americans were four times more likely to report using cocaine in their lifetime.
  • "Countries with stringent user-level drug policies did not have lower levels of use than countries with liberal ones."
  • People with higher incomes were more likely to use drugs.

That last one is pretty interesting considering the public image that's been put on drug use.
