Abstract : A data base of various drug use variables has been created on a broad sample of 13,452 Air Force service men, officers as well as enlisted men. While lack of resources prevents a detailed analysis of information in the data base, certain trends are evident. Alcohol is consumed by most Air Force personnel, but current use of illicit drugs is confined to a small percentage. In addition, users of illicit drugs are predominately in the first term enlisted ranks. Finally, more than one-third of the users of illicit drugs claim they usually buy their drugs on Air Force bases. (Author)
