Inhalant Data From Press TV

Via the "Quick Facts: Drug abuse in the United States" on the Press TV website, interesting inhalant data:

  • In 2009, there were 813,000 persons aged 12 or older who had used inhalants for the first time within the past 12 months, which is similar to the numbers in prior years since 2002
  • 67.9 percent were under age 18 when they first used.
  • The average age at first use among recent initiates aged 12 to 49 was also similar in 2008 and 2009 (15.9 and 16.9 years, respectively).
