The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a report out titled “Drugs Used by Americans for the First Time.”
The agency has tracked the number of drug-related deaths in the U.S. since 2002.
Among the top ten drugs were cocaine, opioids, amphetamines, methamphetamine, LSD, hallucinogens, benzodiazepines, and LSD.
The report says there have been 9,085 drug-induced deaths in America.
The CDC notes that, on average, people die from the 10 most commonly prescribed drugs in the country every day.
They are benzodiazapines, opioids (including oxycodone), oxymorphone, morphine, fentanyl, heroin, and cannabis.
It notes that most of these drugs have a prescription from the FDA.
