10 million give or take


That's a hard question to answer. It's probably between 20 - 50% of the adult population of America, depending on what study you are referencing.

Many experts claim that it's at least 1-in-4 Americans. Which would be 76,751,637 people according to US Census Bureau Data for 2009.
