Country Music Mentions Drugs More Than Any Genre of Music

Ask you average music consumer "what genre of music mentions drug use the most" and they'll probably name rap music first. Turns out rap comes in last. According to a study done by country music mentions drug use more than any other genre of music!

Have the reaserchers heard Future's, Mask Off? Country music is historically known to be family-friendly so how in the world did it manage to beat not only Rap but Rock, and EDM? Fishing and farm life might be more stressful than we realize?

You may be thinking, well I'm sure moonshine is mentioned a lot in Country Music and since alcohol is a drug, yea I can see that. You darling are wrong because they didn't include alcohol in this study. So how exactly did this study work? 

 “song lyrics from Song Meanings API and analyzed drug mentions, what drugs were involved, and how it changed over time, and grouped drug slang words together in their respected drug categories.”

Somehow when they study is broken up by artist it becomes a little harder to believe country music is coming in first place.

Here's the rest of the graphs....
