Over 50 million college students abuse drugs

In USA TODAY, they reported that nearly half of over 5 million college students abuse drugs or drink alcohol, at least once a month.  It was reported that this is an increasingly urgent problem across the nation.

Abuse of prescription drugs and marijuana was reported as “increasing dramatically”.

Amazingly it was reported that in a study by CASA, 22.9% of students “meet the medical definition for alcohol or drug abuse or dependence”.
