I'm not quite sure how you arrived at that from stats about prescription drug overdose.

If you are interested in the low rate of crime, well, click on NH after you find it.

The 1.3 mil or so in NH are a pretty small sample. There are four times that many people in the metropolitan area here.

In all cases, the prescription drugs are more dangerous.

Smoking dope isn't (or wasn't) legal in NH, so you could be charged with possession, which makes employment more difficult. AFAIK, WA & CO are the only two states allowing recreational use of marijuana. My understanding is that CA has not bothered to deal with possession of minor quantities due to the cost of enforcement (but that my have changed, or I may have misunderstood).

A lot of cities & counties in CO are choosing to not allow retail sales for recreational use. Locally there was also a voter measure (upcoming) to charge a 25% tax rate. Idiots (duh, they're politicians). That's just going to perpetuate a black market. I personally will not vote to support such a tax rate (if it were an interest rate, people would think it was inexcusable).

Try and come up with some corellations from the data on that first page (note also that D.C. has about the most restrictive gun laws in the country).

African Americans: that's what's going on in D.C.

They make up 8.4% of the U.S. population, but 60% of the D.C. population.
