Men's lacrosse players were the biggest illicit drug users among athletes competing in the National Collegiate Athletic Association's 23 sanctioned sports, according to a survey by the governing body.

Lacrosse players were the biggest users of amphetamines, anabolic steroids, cocaine, marijuana and narcotics, according to the NCAA's quadrennial survey, which included 20,474 responses from student-athletes.
