    This is from their website, it's a success report from 2011:

    Impact on Demand (2000 through 2011):
    Teen drug use:
    650,000 fewer teenagers used illicit drugs last year than a decade earlier, a 15 percent decline.
    Marijuana:
    Current marijuana use by teens has dropped seven percent.
    Methamphetamine:
    Current methamphetamine use by teens has plummeted 67 percent.
    Ecstasy:
    Current use of Ecstasy has been slashed by 42 percent among teens.
    Cocaine:
    Current cocaine use among high school seniors has dropped 48 percent, and crack cocaine use has
    decreased 50 percent.
    Steroids:
    Steroid use by teens has dropped by 44 percent.
    LSD:
    LSD use has dropped by an astounding 50 percent.
    Workplace drug use:
    Drug use among workers remains overall at its lowest level in more than 20 years. Since 1988,
    positive drug tests have fallen by 72 percent, from 13.6 percent in 1988 to 3.6 percent in 2010.
    Cocaine use among workers:
    Cocaine use among America's general workforce declined an unprecedented 68 percent between
    2006 and 2010.
    Workplace marijuana use:
    Workplace drug tests in America’s workforce in 2010 showed a 12.5 percent drop in marijuana
    use compared to 2006.
    I'm assuming that is testing every possible drug user and, if surveys were used, that all answers were truthful.

    I know plenty of drug users and none of which are worried about the law. Sure they take steps to avoid it, but that's the point, it's avoidable. It's a waste

    If there are no hemp permits issued by the feds, and it's illegal, then why is there Hemp milk being sold in the local organic food store?

    Those DEA statistics only go back to 2006. You can't fairly say that drug prohibition, which has been in effect for almost 40 years, was the reason for a decline in the last 5 years.

    Do you agree with my other two responses?
