Study: Americans Pretty Wasted

Look to your left. Look to your right. Both of those people are in jail. And so are you, because of something you did while drunk. This is because so many people are binge drinking now, I bet.

Oh, as usual our assumption was correct:

Nearly a quarter of all Americans have participated in binge drinking, and 8.4% have used an illicit drug in the past month, a new report says.

That is considered high, by USA Today! What else are you doing with your free time, Americans?

  • 9% of you are "dependent" on drugs or alcohol.
  • 5% of you "had a serious mental illness in the past year."
  • Most of you are fucked up.
