1,576,976 people die every year from drugs
I don't have an answer. I'm looking for 1 case, but I cannot find just 1 cause of death from marijuana. Marijuana doesn't have any harm on the human body.
Cigarette smoking causes about one of every five deaths each year.
There are thousands of deaths each year in America sue to a gun related incident. An estimated number of 20 percent of deaths are related to guns.

How many people die each year because of gang drive-bys? How many teens are killed each year because of gangs? By: mariah Henessey
From 2001-2005, there were approximately 79,000 deaths annually attributable to excessive alcohol use in the US. According to the Centers for Disease Control, excessive… alcohol use is the 3rd leading lifestyle-related cause of death for people in the United States each year.
Very few. Cocaine kills maybe 300 tops a year. Most of the time it only kills users who are dumb and don't know what the hell they are doing and end up O.D.ing or they have He…art disease/problems. So most healthy and smart people don't die from cocaine use. There are more deaths associated with caffeine then cocaine a year. Cocaine and caffeine are almost similar when it comes to health problems and addiction. ADDIT Cocaine is almost impossible to O.D on solely. What causes death is the combination of other substances most of the users have in there system, particularly alcohol, which has a chemical reaction to cocaine...and in excess will kill you. Actually deaths related to cocaine use are frequent and still on the rise, even though its dangers are well known. Cocaine is so dangerous because it can rarely be purchased in pure form. Street cocaine is often counterfeit or cut with other substances in order to increase profits for the seller. Counterfeit or street cocaine can include a number of different stimulants, anestethics, or other substances that can prove destructive or even lethal. While 'dumb' people are victim to cocaine overdose and death, there are many INTELLIGENT, POWERFUL, AND EXPERIENCED drug users who are taken by surprise by the instantaneous, adverse consequences of the drug's effects.

There are about 75000 deaths each year just in the united states!
According to the Human Factors quarterly journal, "Cell phone distraction causes 2,600 deaths and 330,000 injuries in the United States every year" (2005). The same study repo…rted that motorists who are engaged in cell phone conversations while driving are less capable than drunk drivers with blood alcohol levels exceeding .08. These statistics are frightening considering how pervasive cell phones are in our society. With a greater awareness of the potential cell phones have to distract drivers, many states, and even cities, are adopting laws that limit or restrict the use of cell phones while driving. It is important to be aware of these laws while travelling in other states and visiting other cities so you do not inadvertently break the law. Even in states and cities where there are no restrictions on cell phone use by motorists, limiting cell phone use while driving will make you a more attentive driver, ready to react when the unexpected occurs.
