"Just by coincidence I see here a survey noting rates of marijuana use by state....Alaska comes in first,"

(no, Alaska doesn't even rate)

According to Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in their 2002-2003 "National Surveys on Drug Use and Health," North Dakota had the highest rate (10.8%) of alcohol dependence or alcohol abuse during the survey year while Tennessee had the lowest rate (6.0 %).

North Dakota also had the highest rate (31.4%) in the nation for "binge alcohol use" by persons who were 12 years old or older.

"Binge alcohol use" is defined as drinking five or more alcoholic drinks at one sitting on at least one day in the 30 days prior to the survey. Whereas North Dakota had the highest rate (31.4%), Utah had the lowest rate (15.9%).

As revealed by the SAMHSA survey, the following states also had high rate of binge drinking: Colorado, Iowa, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
