Drug Statistics and Facts
Acute lead poisoning is a potential risk for methamphetamine abusers.
Most (71.5 percent) of the 0.6 million recent cocaine initiates were 18 or older when they first used. The average age at first use among recent initiates aged 12 to 49 was 20.0 years, which was similar to the average age in 2008 (19.8 years).
Young adults aged 18 to 22 enrolled full time in college were more likely than their peers not enrolled full time (i.e., part-time college students and persons not currently enrolled in college) to use alcohol in the past month, binge drink, and drink heavily. Among full-time college students in 2008, 61.0 percent were current drinkers, 40.5 percent binge drank, and 16.3 percent were heavy drinkers. Among those not enrolled full time in college, these rates were 54.2, 38.1, and 13.0 percent, respectively. Rates of current alcohol use and binge use for full-time college students decreased from 2007, when they were 63.7 and 43.6 percent, respectively.
In 2009, an estimated 22.5 million persons (8.9 percent of the population aged 12 or older) were classified with substance dependence or abuse in the past year based on criteria specified in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition (DSM-IV). Of these, 3.2 million were classified with dependence on or abuse of both alcohol and illicit drugs, 3.9 million were dependent on or abused illicit drugs but not alcohol, and 15.4 million were dependent on or abused alcohol but not illicit drugs.

Large meth lab found in Cherokee County,Alabama.




The largest methamphetamine lab found in Cherokee County,Alabama in two years was seized Wednesday in a raid by the county’s narcotics unit and other agencies.

Narcotics unit Commander Chas Clifton said four people were arrested and drugs, items to make the drugs and cash were seized.

Christopher Todd Spears, 46, and Angela Cochran Spears, 41, both of Leesburg,Alabama and Kevin Edward Vaughn, 32, of Floyd County, Georgia, were charged with first-degree manufacturing of methamphetamine, trafficking in methamphetamine and first-degree unlawful possession of marijuana.

Michael Dewayne King, 40, of Floyd County, Georgia, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance for meth.

Two ounces of meth that had been manufactured were found, along with marijuana and more than $700, Clifton said.

Several thousand pseudoephedrine tablets, which are the precursor ingredient used to make meth, were found, he said.

“It took a lot of pill-buying by a lot of different people in Georgia and Alabama to get that amount of pseudoephedrine in one place,” Clifton said. He said the narcotics unit requests that residents and business owners report any suspicious purchases of products.

A hazardous materials contractor licensed to clean up meth labs was called in for cleanup.

There were enough pseudoephedrine tablets at the house to have “cooked” several more ounces of meth, Clifton said.

The actual methamphetamine at the home had a street value of about $3,000, Clifton said. He said he believes about $10,000 worth of meth could have been produced with the amount of pseudoephedrine tablets seized.

The Cherokee,Alabama narcotics unit worked with the Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit Drug Task Force; agents from Chattooga County, Georgia, assigned to the Lookout Mountain DTF; and agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration.

“I cannot thank the surrounding agencies enough for their help here in Cherokee County,Alabama” Clifton said. “These agencies realize that we are a small unit and working with them on these types of cases makes a big difference in the deterrence of illegal drug crimes here as well as in their jurisdictions. We hope to continue our work together because criminals have no jurisdictional lines and the drug offenders who are here selling drugs are there selling drugs.”

Spears had been under investigation for about a week, Clifton said, but it was the help of other agencies that provided the information needed for the arrests.

“The folks from Chattooga County, Georgia, had just the right information at just the right time to make the case come together,” Clifton said.
