A giant problem for America. A small number of us, a little more than 1% of the American population addicted to illegal drugs, but taking a 35 billion dollar bite out of the health care system. Responsible for a third of all the AIDS in America and so on. It's just a tremendous nightmare. That problem needs to be addressed.
Now, having said that, 6% of our Nation regularly uses drugs, about 12 million people. They are seven out of ten employed. They're in the workplace. They're not under a bridge someplace. They're working for you and me. And they're terrible employees. They cause a third of all industrial accidents. They cause just a disproportionate amount of work absenteeism.
