Baby-boomers are still struggling with drug abuse, according to study

Are you a baby-boomer?

They grew up during the rise of the drug culture.  There was Acapulco God, LSD and a whole bunch of other drugs that they abused.

It seems like a bunch of them have moved from being young drug abusers to almost senior citizen abusers.  They haven't been able to kick the habit.

Check this from today's Detroit News:

One of the few comprehensive studies of the problem found that 3 million Americans older than 50 in 2004 had used illicit drugs such as marijuana, cocaine or heroin, or had misused anti-anxiety, anti-depression or other prescription drugs.

Research by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimates that number could more than double by 2020.
