The use of illicit drugs and resultant harm is universally accepted as being on the increase. An increase in the supply of illegal drugs on the streets, coupled with a relative fall in price over the past 10 years, means that they are more accessible.
Where adolescents experimented with alcohol in the past they are now turning in the direction of drugs. A tab of l.s.d. costs between £2.50-£5, or a wrap of amphetamine £7. It is important also to recognise that illicit drug use is not confined to youngsters and the unemployed, but is widespread among those in work and those you least expect - drug users do not conform to any stereotype.
