DAWN provides information about drug use that leads to the use of hospital emergency departments (EDs). Included in the data are such things as the specific drug(s) mentioned, reason for the ED visit, what motivated the use of the drug, and demographic break outs by age, ethnicity, and gender.
Actually, it's all federal data, but here is where you will find crime statistics, drug seizures, drug eradications, the federal drug budget, etc
