Diane Wallace: KY actually ranks 9th as worst for drug problems

About: Today - MONDAY with CM - 14 May 2018

Diane Wallace writes
My quest to know which state ranked No. 1 resulted in finding out KY actually ranked No. 9 and Indiana ranking No. 7. Hovering each of the states still did not reveal where No. 1 was. I had to click on the wallet hub to review the chart. District of Columbia ranks No. 1, which last time I checked was not actually a state in the union. Diane Wallace
Thanks, Diane Wallace: You are right. We've corrected the ranking for Kentucky. You are right. The District of Columbia is not a state, though for rankings, WalletHub lists all states and the District of Columbia for convenience. And thanks for letting us know so early in the morning. - EW
