It also played a central role in the Civil War, being the second state to secede from the union. Today Mississippi has a very diverse population. Marijuana and crack cocaine are the most common drugs of abuse and addiction in Mississippi. Other commonly abused drugs include pharmaceuticals such as Xanax, Fentanyl, Valium and Oxycontin.
