• In the year of 2013, 8.1 million persons aged 12 or older used marijuana on 20 or more days in the past month, which was an increase from the 5.1 million daily or almost daily past month users in 2005 to 2007. The number of daily or almost daily users in 2013 represented 41.1 percent of past month marijuana users. Obviously, marijuana abuse on a daily basis is a pretty common thing in the U.S., and it is growing more prevalent each and every year. This is worrisome because marijuana, aside from all of the adverse health and addiction-related effects of the drug, is also the number one gateway drug in the nation. Marijuana is quite popular in California right now.
• The sad truth of the matter when it comes to addiction is that the vast majority of people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol do not get the help that they need for whatever addiction it is. Although most people don’t get the treatment they need, there were over three-million people in 2011 who received treatment for their addiction crisis and trouble. One can learn more about their treatment options whenever they want, and anyone can seek out and go to treatment if they want, but unfortunately many do not do so. California has a huge drug problem, but there are solutions to addiction.
