Based on SAMHSA's Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS), the rate of the primary methamphetamine/ amphetamine treatment admissions reporting smoking methamphetamines or amphetamines was 50% in 2002 compared with 12% in 1992. In 2002, only one State (Ohio) had a decrease in the proportion of methamphetamine/ amphetamine admissions that smoked methamphetamines or amphetamines. Hawaii continued to have over 90% of its methamphetamine/ amphetamine admissions that smoked the drug. In nine States, over 50% of the methamphetamine/ amphetamine admissions smoked the drug in 2002 and for five of these States (Colorado, Iowa, Nevada, Utah, and Washington State) their rate of smoked methamphetamine/ amphetamine was 10% or less in 1992

Based on SAMHSA's National Survey on Drug Use and Health, an average of 4.2 million persons aged 16 to 20 reported driving under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs during the past year.  About 169,000 of these persons (4%) reported that they had been arrested and booked for DUI/ DWI involving alcohol or drugs in the past year.

On a Lighter Note:

Three men sitting on the same row in an airplane found that they were all heading to an orthopedics conference. A managed care executive had the window seat. In the middle was a malpractice lawyer. An orthopedic surgeon the aisle seat. The orthopedist, tired from doing on-call surgery all night, took off his shoes and leaned back to relax. Just then, the managed care exec decided to get up to get a drink. 

"No, don't. Let me get it for you. It's easier to get up from the aisle seat", said the orthopedist. While he was gone, the managed care executive spit in the doctor's right shoe. 

Just as the orthopedist had settled down to relax again, the lawyer said, "My, that drink looks good. I think I'll go get one myself."

"Please don't, you might fall and injure yourself. Let me get it for you." said the orthopedist. While he was gone, the lawyer spit in the orthopedist's left shoe. 

When the plane landed, the orthopedist put on his shoes and realized what had happened. He looked at them in disgust, "How long must this go on?" he asked. "This fighting between our professions? This hatred? This animosity? This spitting in shoes and peeing in cokes?"
