The drug that has taken over the country’s consciousness in recent years, and that could soon be banned by the federal government, is cocaine.
Drugs that are banned in the United States include heroin and methamphetamine, as well as cannabis, according to a new study from the University of Washington.
But the study found that cocaine is the drug with the most support among adults.
“We’re finding a big shift in the general population,” said Dr. Daniel L. D’Agostino, lead author of the study and a UW professor of psychology.
The study analyzed data from more than 14,000 adults across the United Kingdom and Ireland and found that adults who have used cocaine in the past three years are twice as likely to have used it during the past year than the general public.
That may not sound like a lot, but the findings suggest that if we could ban cocaine today, it could have a significant impact on public health, the researchers said.
In the study, published today in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence, the team used data from a nationally representative survey of about 3,000 U.S. adults to determine which drug was the most common drug used in adults in 2014.
There were 1,946 adults who used cocaine during the three-year period, with a median age of 34 and a median annual income of $55,600.
Among those who used it, 45 percent reported using heroin, 28 percent used methamphetamine and 21 percent used cocaine.
There was no significant difference between those who had used heroin and those who hadn’t, D’Arcy Lassiter, the study’s lead author and a psychology professor at the University at Buffalo, said in a news release.
Cocaine use in the U.K. is similar to that in the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates and Mexico.
The Dutch have banned cocaine use since 2005, while in the UAE and Mexico it is a crime to buy or sell it.
