Why does Florida have so much drug use?

I keep stumbling upon news articles concerning drug incidents in Florida. Is it just me, or does Florida have an unusually high rate of drug activity? If so, why?

Spikes in drug activity, crime, and other drug related incidents are often reflections of higher rates of drug addiction in an area.


Drug Abuse

High levels of drug trafficking often leads to increased drug abuse and drug related incidents.

Florida, just like any other warm weather state has a higher level of substance abuse because there are many more transients who are between places int heir life,. As a result, they are unstable, and more apt to "party".

As a result so many detox clinics and rehab centers have opened and remianed in business helping these party-goers.

Hope that helps.
