A 2003 study found that 37.4 percent of young people have used illicit drugs. All drugs, illegal or legal, can have harmful consequences if they are abused. As abusers' lives become consumed by drugs, they are likely to fail in school or at work, tear apart their families, or commit crimes to support their habits. Even legal drugs such as nicotine can lead to severe health problems or death. From illicit drugs such as cocaine, heroin, and ecstasy-to easily obtainable and potentially harmful products such as alcohol, cigarettes, and inhalants-the Drugs series provides the reader with information about drug abuse. Real-life case histories are included. Book jacket.
