    Dear Dr. Sack,

    You say the number of Americans 12 and older who use illicit drugs totals 27 million but your breakdown adds up to 39 million. You also say only 2 million use marijuana. Almost sure that should be 20 million. Might want to review those numbers again. Or maybe I’m misreading it.

    All the best,
