We’re used to Michigan making lots of “best of” lists, but this is one list where it would be better to not be in the top ten.

Wood TV 8 reports that Michigan is among the ten states with the biggest drug problems, according to Wallethub

Wallethub’s “Drug Use by State: 2017’s Problem Areas” study compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia in three overall categories: 1) Drug Use & Addiction, 2) Law Enforcement and 3) Drug Health Issues & Rehab.

They looked at 15  metrics like percent of teens and adults who used illicit drugs in the past month, number of meth lab incidents, number of overdose deaths per capita, number of drug arrests, and number of admissions to substance abuse treatment services.

Wallethub found Michigan to have the tenth largest drug problem in the U.S.

The District of Columbia was ranked first in terms of drug issues, and Idaho last.

Here are the other states Wallethub found to have the biggest drug problems:

  1. District of Columbia
  2. Vermont
  3. Colorado
  4. Delaware
  5. Rhode Island
  6. Oregon
  7. Connecticut
  8. Arizona
  9. Massachusetts
  10. Michigan
