The Chemical Brothers and Sisters Come of Age
This briefing, from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), looks at the widespread use of recreational drugs by young people and the implications for law policies and enforcement. Researchers gathered some frightening statistics concerning the numbers of young people who have tried and are using drugs, often at the same time as consuming alcohol and tobacco. The researchers also found that more public information and education is needed.
The briefing ends with a set of questions for discussion in groups and includes activities designed to increase understanding and awareness.
ESRC is a part of Research Councils UK (RCUK).
