Colorado is among the lowest spenders on programs designed to prevent or treat alcohol and drug use -- even though the state's residents are more likely to abuse both.
A two year survey by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration released last week shows Coloradans rank far above the national average for using alcohol, marijuana and cocaine.

Spending rose to $27.3 million dollars in 2003, but $400,000 was cut from the past budget year -- and more reductions are looming.
