CT among the states with the biggest drug problems

At least according to Wallethub, a personal finance website, which released a study on Monday, May 15 identifying the states with the biggest drug problems.

WalletHub said its rankings are based on 15 key areas, including the percentage of teenagers and adults who used illicit drugs in the past month; the number of opioid pain reliever prescriptions per 100 people, per capita overdose deaths, methamphetamine lab incidents, and admissions to substance abuse treatment services. Additionally, the analysis found more drug-related issues in states that voted Democrat in the 2016 presidential election than states that voted Republican.

The White House has established a commission to study the opioid epidemic yet it proposed to cut the Office of Drug Control Policy's budget by 95 percent.

MI ranked 10th overall for its drug problem. The percentage of people who admit to ever using an illicit drug has risen from 31.3 percent in 1979 to 48.8 percent in 2015, according to National Institute of Drug Abuse data cited by WalletHub.

4th in percentage of teenagers who were offered, sold, or given an illegal drug on school property in the past year. In fact, teenagers in CT joined adults in that 19th percentile of those who had used illicit drugs in the past month. It also ranked second for the highest percentage of adult and teenage drug users. There are also many arrests on college campuses.
