WYOMING DRUG CONTROL UPDATE: "This report reflects significant trends, data, and major issues relating to drugs in the State of Wyoming."
In 2009-2010, Wyoming was one of the top ten states for rates of drug-use in several categories, including; illicit drug dependence among persons age 12-17; and past-month use of illicit drugs other than marijuana among persons age 12-17. Source: National Survey on Drug Use and Health 2009-2010.
Approximately 7.07 percent of Wyoming residents reported past-month use of illicit drugs; the national average was 8.82 percent.
In 2009, the rate of drug-induced deaths in Wyoming was lower than the national average.
In 2011, nearly half of Wyoming drug treatment admissions were for marijuana.
