A note on the determinants of substance abuse spending
Although many studies have addressed policies directed towards the use of licit drugs, namely, alcohol and tobacco, less attention has been paid on policies affecting the use of illicit drugs. Accordingly, similar to studies of tobacco control spending, this article addresses the determinants of US state-level spending on substance abuse. Substance abuse spending is found to be higher in states with higher illicit drug use, as well as more rural states with higher per capita income, whose legislatures are controlled by Democrats.
