• The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks the United States first among no less than 17 European and North American countries for prevalence of marijuana use amongst youth. More users start every day too. In the year of 2008, an estimated 2.2 million Americans used marijuana for the first time; greater than half of the first-time users were under the age of 18.
• Treatment admissions for methamphetamine use and abuse have also increased substantially in recent years. In the year of 1992 for example, there were approximately 21,000 treatment admissions in which methamphetamine/amphetamine was identified as the primary drug of abuse for those who admitted to a drug of choice. By 2004, the number of methamphetamine treatment admissions increased to greater than a full 150,000, representing no less than eight percent of all admissions.
