“In 2006, over 2 million Americans used illicit drugs during work hours during the prior year. Approximately 3 million workers used an illicit drug within two hours of reporting to work and over 2 million used illicit drugs during lunch breaks. Over 7% of Americans reported using alcohol during the workday and 9% reported having worked during a hangover (Frone, 2006b).”
