Increase in Use of Illicit Drugs

It has been recently revealed that there has been a rise in the number of people falling prey to the horrible drug abuse stance. There are more and more people who have admitted to have used an illicit drug, at least once in their life. This open-mindedness and changing nature of the social circuit is actually ruining people's lives.

There have been a number of deaths each year due to drug overdoses in people and there is need for bringing down these levels by making more and more people aware about the side effects that any sort of addiction can tend to have in them.

"The system's emphasis on criminalization of drug use has contributed to the spread of HIV, increased imprisonment for minor offences, and contributed to legitimizing extremely punitive national policies", said the report.

Countries like New Zealand and Australia, besides a number of others, are falling prey to illicit drug abuse in recent times. Here was a detailed analysis done on people in the age group of 15-64 years, and it was found that there is still need for many people to really understand what they can be heading for. Many people try drugs, in their teenage and gradually get hooked to them. This makes things worse in the time to come, and makes them numb to be thinking about the health side effects

It is essential that people understand that they need to give up their addictions, so that they can lead a long happy and healthy life.

Marijuana and its various synthetic forms are so widely available in the world that it is not even counted as a hardcore drug. The people, however, fail to understand here that the addiction of any sort will make the health of a person deteriorate and make him or her prone to a host of diseases.
