Drug Statistics and Facts
Because it is part of the illegal drug trade and is the most widely used illegal substance in North America, marijuana is a major contributor (directly and indirectly) to petty crime and drug related violence.
Current illicit drug use among persons aged 12 or older varied by race/ethnicity in 2009, with the lowest rate occurring among Asians (3.7 percent). Rates were 18.3 percent for American Indians or Alaska Natives, 14.3 percent for persons reporting two or more races, 9.6 percent for blacks, 8.8 percent for whites, and 7.9 percent for Hispanics.
From 2002 to 2009, there was an increase among young adults aged 18 to 25 in the rate of current nonmedical use of prescription-type drugs (from 5.5 to 6.3 percent), driven primarily by an increase in pain reliever misuse (from 4.1 to 4.8 percent). There were decreases in the use of cocaine (from 2.0 to 1.4 percent) and methamphetamine (from 0.6 to 0.2 percent).
In 2009, an estimated 12.0 percent of persons aged 12 or older drove under the influence of alcohol at least once in the past year. This percentage has dropped since 2002, when it was 14.2 percent. The rate of driving under the influence of alcohol was highest among persons aged 21 to 25 (24.8 percent).

Montana : Meth makers sentenced to prison.



A man and woman who cooked meth at a Billings,Montana residence will spend time in federal prison.

Chief U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull Tuesday sentenced Carey Ray Jackson, 46, of Billings,Montana to 10 years in prison and co-defendant, Patricia Sue Hopkins, 47, of Fairview,Montana to three years and 10 months in prison. He also ordered $5,185 restitution. Restitution will go to the Drug Enforcement Administration for the cost of cleaning up the meth lab.

The pair pleaded guilty in March to conspiring to manufacture meth from about March to September 2004. Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Sheila Kolar said Hopkins, Jackson and others bought pseudoephedrine, a meth ingredient found in cold medicine, 10 times at the Wal-Marts in the Billings,Montana. The two were identified from security tapes in the stores.

When agents with the Eastern Montana High Intensity Drug Task Force served a search warrant at 2330 Bench Blvd. on Sept. 8, 2004, they found a dismantled meth lab. Chemicals in various stages of meth production were found in the house and shed. Hopkins admitted to cooking meth about seven times in the previous year and to helping Jackson on numerous cooks.

Cebull sentenced Jackson to double the minimum mandatory term he normally would have faced because he had three previous drug felonies.

Hopkins also had a previous felony drug conviction in state court for which she got a deferred sentence. She was revoked twice for violations and each time got a suspended sentence. Hopkins told Cebull she had spent three weeks in jail but none in prison on her state offense.

Both defendants apologized for their actions.
