Abstract:
The article provides information on the drug policy outlined for the young people and their illicit drug use in Great Britain. Statistically speaking, the youth in the region is the biggest group of consumers of illicit drugs, and has constantly been increasing in number as time goes by. At some point, accurate data drawn on drug use is notedly difficult to obtain especially that youth likely to conceal their use of illegal drugs. As for the government strategy in solving the problem, it is further believed to have lack of sensitivity on the different types of drugs.
