Page 1 of 5

Below you can see the list of the top 5 U.S. cities with the most overall drug use rates (see the methodology and data source here). Please keep in mind that the statistics we share below show the percentage of people in each city who used drugs at least once. So, when we say “percentage of people who use cocaine is 20%” that means one out of every 5 people in that city used cocaine at least once. It doesn’t mean that a fifth of that city uses cocaine on a single day. Here are the worst cities for drug use:

5. Wichita, KS

Percentage of people who use cocaine: 21.8%
