Edit 2021: Depressingly, the number of deaths increased by a huge amount in 2020 (not reflected on this quiz). In terms of life years lost in the United States, it's nearly as bad as the coronavirus pandemic, except that this happens every single year, and almost no one cares.
Ohh and needless to say, I sucked at this quiz, but I knew that would be the case.
It's sad to think of how much of a problem this has all become. I've long seen alcohol damage or kill people, and more recently in my life, I have unfortunately seen illegal opiates do the same. This crisis has touched a lot of people.
Even if you have the mandatory military service, the "broken people" can still opt out or get kicked out. You don't really want mentally unstable people handling guns, anyway.
For what I've seen, drug abuse is most often a combination of three things: availability, culture, mental. So, apathy / no hope alone doesn't cut it. It's just a strong motivational characteristic, if you can call it that, considering.
And I still only got 3.
It usually goes like this: person has an ailment; their doctor, paid by companies to push their drugs, prescribes drug (often incorrectly); person eventually can't pay for the drug anymore due to crappy healthcare, so they resort to illegal alternatives.
Note, however, that the legality of a drug doesn't change its lethality.
