How many people who are in work use performance-enhancing drugs in Germany?

How many people who are in work use performance-enhancing drugs in Germany? 2 percent, says the statutory health insurance DAK in a report from 2009 (.pdf), but according to the business newspaper Handelsblatt the broadest study to that topic. The study is mentioned in a long article, published today, about drugs consumed in executive floors in Germany. The reason for this article is Michael Hartmann, Member of German Parliament (Bundestag) and former spokesperson for the SPD parliament party, who admitted that he had consumed the hard drug Crystal Meth.
