From the Paper:

"It is estimated that 12.8 million Americans, about 6 percent of the household population aged 12 and older, have used illicit drug within the past 30 days. There is a misconception in America that substance abuse occurs in a segment of society that is different from the mainstream. They mistakenly stereotype drug abusers as vagrants on the fringe of society; yet, three fourths of drug users are not employed. In fact, "approximately 45 percent of Americans know someone with a substance abuse problem" ("America's drug abuse profile", 2009). Substance abuse does not discriminate."
