Declining Drug Use in Britain – NYTimes.com

The number of adults in England and Wales who used illicit substances in 2009-10 – 8.6% – was the lowest recorded since the study began in 1996. Among 16-24-year-olds, the picture was the same, with just 20% saying they had taken drugs in the previous year – another record low, and a third lower than the proportion 15 years ago.”  That said, hospital admissions for drug-poisoning rose 4.8 percent last year, and drug-related deaths may also be rising.
