North Dakota is the State Where Not Using Drugs is Cool
Based on a recent survey from WalletHub, there’s not a big drug problem in North Dakota.
Throughout all fifty states in the U.S., along with Washington, D.C., North Dakota has the 48th biggest drug problem in the country. Or 4th best if we count back from the 51 that are considered.
The factors used to score the results of the survey were Drug Use and Addiction, Drug Health Issues and Rehab, and Law Enforcement.
North Dakota also has the lowest percentage of drug use in teenagers and are in the top three in the least amount of overdoses per capita. South Dakota was also right in line with North Dakota in those areas, ranking right with us.
Overall, the top three worst drug problems in the U.S. are Colorado, Vermont, and Washington, D.C., finishing at number one, with the worst drug problem. The only states to finish ahead of North Dakota were Nebraska, Kansas, and Idaho, with the lowest drug problems.

It’d be nice to say that in North Dakota, drugs just aren’t that cool.
