In an ongoing campaign intended to both frighten and influence the nation's youth, the Japanese government has released a study asserting that 2.76 million Japanese are estimated to have used illegal drugs.
That is 2.9% of the country's population.
The drugs included in the survey were cannabis, stimulants, ecstasy, cocaine, and heroine.
There was nothing in the report about alcohol or tobacco use.
