An extensive and easy-to-use collection of charts that present findings from decades of government survey data of drug use in the United States is now available on the website of Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.

Bennett Drug Charts provide a more accurate and illuminating picture of drug use — from alcohol to methamphetamines and tranquilizers — than is typically presented in popular media or reflected in the country’s drug policies, said William Martin, director of the Baker Institute’s Drug Policy Program.
