Abstract: El uso ilícito de drogas varía significativamente por raza (incluso latinos) y ubicación. Los investigadores dividieron las áreas en 3 categorías: grandes condados metropolitanos, pequeños condados metropolitanos y condados no-metropolitanos. El uso de todas las drogas ilícitas, de marihuana y el uso no médico de drogas de prescripción eran todos más comunes en los condados metropolitanos pequeños y menos común en los condados no metropolitanos. Cualquier uso de drogas (incluyendo el uso no médico de drogas recetadas) era más común entre las personas de raza mixta, seguidas de cerca por los nativos americanos y hawaianos/isleños del Pacífico. Era menos común entre los asiáticos.///Illicit drug use varies significantly by race and location.
