Wait, college students use drugs? Even those who are there to play sports? WHAAAAT?! No. Way.

Sorry, I got jokes. Moving on…

22.3% of all full-time college students report having recently used illicit substances, so we know it’s being done, but how do the numbers vary for athletes?

Thanks to a new report by Project Know we have a pretty good idea, and then some.

In the first chart we see that, surprisingly, alcohol is used more often by the athletes than the nation at large. Not surprisingly, marijuana is also more highly used, while the use of cigarettes is far less.

Chart number two breaks it down by gender and the results aren’t terribly surprising.
