District of Intoxication
Ten percent of DC residents (60,000 people) are addicted to drugs or alcohol, leading to costs of $1.2 billion per year for the city. That is a staggering number when you think about it. By comparison, the number of addicts in the District is larger than the number who live in Mrs. MSR's homeotwn, which is the third largest in our home state. There could be lots of reasons for the high number, I suppose, but I blame the traffic.
