Tallahassee, FL, in Leon County, has significantly lower drug-related fatalities than the rest of the state. Similarly, fewer students use drugs. That said, it is has some significant problems. The two greatest substances of concern in Tallahassee at present are cocaine and Xantax, or at least its active compound alprazolam. At the same time, it should be noted that the rates of use for those two substances are lower than the state average.
Substance Abuse Problems with Young People
The 2014 Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey also reported that there are far fewer middle and high school students who abuse a drug or alcohol. However, 49.2% of all high school students, as well as 20% of all students in middle schools, did admit to have tried alcohol once or more in their life. More young people have tried alcohol than what they have tried tobacco.
What does continue to be a concern in Tallahassee, however, is the number of people, and particularly young people, who use marijuana. This is actually the second most commonly abused substance. 30.8% of students in high school admit that they use it at present. Inhalants are also commonly abused by middle school students, which is a very serious issue.
Overall, however, the rates of abuse of inhalants, marijuana, and alcohol were all much well below the average for the state. Perhaps most promising of all is the fact that the rates, which are already low, have dropped from the levels in 2012, which in turn dropped from the levels in 2010.
