Drug use is a global issue that is affecting both developing and already developed countries. The majority of drug users are younger people, especially adolescents. The youths who have been exposed to drugs tend to have delinquent and risk-taking behaviors such as violence, theft, and murder. The commonly abused drugs by adolescents include tobacco, alcohol, cannabis, heroin, and cocaine. Nevertheless, many organizations have been trying to come up with programs to handle the use of drugs.
