Michigan is near the top of a list that we do not want to be on.  Michigan has the worst drug use of any other state in the country and only comes in 2nd if you include the District of Columbia.  Ugh...

WalletHub.com just published Drug Use by State: 2019’s Problem Areas and Michigan is the absolute worst state.  Sure, Washington DC is worse, but what else would you expect from our nation's capital?

The methodology used to determine the states with the worst drug problems was broken up into three major categories: Drug Use & Addiction, Law Enforcement, and Drug Health Issues & Rehab.  These categories were further broken down into several metrics.  You can read about their methodology here.
