Should I be concerned about people using drugs, as long as I don't use them?
Two recent studies say yes.
- A study of fatally injured drivers found that nearly 20% had drugs or drugs and alcohol in their systems at the time of the crash.
- A study of inmates in the state prisons conducted by the Bureau of Justice reported that:
- About 49% of the inmates admitted to being under the influence of drugs or drugs and alcohol while committing the offense for which they were incarcerated.
- 17% of the inmates reported committing the offense to get money to buy drugs.
