Economic Costs

USA

The economy was costed $193 billion. The costs were in three areas: crime, health, and productivity.

Our society had to pay higher taxes to pay the police to arrest people for misusing inhalants. This falls under the crime area.

People taking inhalants were most likely to be sick and in need of healthcare. People had to pay for their health care bills. Also, doctors and nurses would have to be paid more money for doing more work or maybe working more hours.

Productivity. The more people that buy inhalant products, the more that factories have to make. Also, the different inhalant products can vary in prices. Some can be more expensive than others. If more people buy them, then the economic cost could go up.
