70,000 DRUG FIKNDS IN I. S.
They Probably Consume 1,700,000,-
000 Average Doses a Year
Washington, Dec. 2.-—The number
of drug "fiends" in the United States
is not nearly so large as had been sup
posed, the public health service re
ports. It had been estimated that be
tween 1 and 2 per cent, of the popula
tion were drug habitues. The report al
so states that the evils due to the im
proper use of such drugs have been
In Tennessee during the first six
months of the Anti-Narcotic law, 1,403
permits were issued to persons,
i The approximate number of average
doses of ha.bit-forjning drugs imported
1 into the United States in 1911 and
j 1912 was respectively 3,040,900,000
; and 2,308.700,000.
From this (lata, the report says, it
would appear from the average con
sumption of the drug habitue in Ten
nessee, that each addict would take
1,000 doses each month or 12,000
doses a year.
Tennessee, it is added, contains one
fiftieit'h of the population of the United
States, and on that ratio there would
be a total of something more thun
1 0,000 drug habitues, consuming ap
proximately 850,000,000 average
doses per year.
This quantity," says the report,
"probably is somewhat "low, but it is
fair to assume that not more than dou
ble this amount, or approximately 1,-
.00,000,000 average doses are consum
ed annually by drug habitues."
