Some Drug Facts

•  Some 210 million people consume illegal drugs – more than the combined populations of California, New York, the United Kingdom, Italy, and Australia.

•  According to the United Nations World Drug Report, nearly 200,000 people die from using illegal drugs each year.

•  Every 12 seconds, another school-age child experiments with illicit drugs for the first time.

•  Drugs are even infiltrating our environment. For example, an analysis of water in Italy’s Po River showed that the waterway carried the equivalent of 4 kilos (8.8 lbs) of cocaine in the water per day, from sewage and drug users.

•  Children are exposed to dangerous – and often deadly – drugs at younger and younger ages, often in their schoolyards.
