UK Study Shows Kids Treated For Cocaine Up 65%
March 1, 2010
According to a report released by the health agency, the amount of underage users of cocaine seeking treatment is up to almost 750 a year.
But that isn’t the full extent of the problem.
According to Crime Survey, 437,000 people between the ages of 16 and 24 have used cocaine in the past year in England and Wales alone.
Not only that, but the image of cocaine as a ‘party’ drug has grown, and fewer young people consider it any worst than marijuana, which is the only drug that scales higher in popularity.
Other drugs once popular among younger crowds, such as ecstasy, are dropping in use.
