The total amount of people admitted in a drug rehab facility for assistance with a marijuana abuse problem in the state of Mississippi was almost 1,400 in 2009. This is according to a report by SAMHSA (or the Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Administration). The drug passes across ethnic and socioeconomic barriers all throughout the state. It primarily is smuggled in from Mexico. The second most common reason for admittance is cocaine at just over 1,000. According to the National Substance Abuse Index, the drug is the most problematic and high-threat drug in the state. Like marijuana, it is used throughout the entire state. There has been an increase in the production of methamphetamine (or meth) in Mississippi, mostly in rural communities. This has made the use and addiction of the drug more widespread.
The use of these drugs, and drugs like Ecstasy, Ketamine and others, can lead to crime, illness and even death. If you or anyone you know has a problem with them, it is time to seek help.
