This is the first study reporting on use of a variety of new drugs in a nationally representative U.S. sample.

The researchers advocate for health surveys to ask about use of new drugs, in addition to traditional drugs such as marijuana and cocaine, in order to quickly pick up on potential drug epidemics.
