The physiological effects of drug addiction can be difficult to endure and this is why the addict must be treated for their condition.The worst thing is that drugs are that they affect youth in every country of the world.The term drug not only means medicine, but fatal narcotics with different specifications.
Drug addiction has become a worldwide problem, especially in teenagers.
Many young people become dependent on different types substances and stimulating medicines that comes hand-in-hand with narcotic effect.
The perception that drug use is associated with crime has reigned not only among sociology researchers but it has also been perpetuated by the media.
In addition to social problems, drug use has been associated with harms that are suffered by users.
This paper critically examines the views that criminalisation of drug use leads to greater social problems and harms to individuals.
The central viewpoint is that it is not an absolute truth that drug use is not an obvious cause of crime.Unfortunately, individuals who usually consumed heroin were already harbouring antisocial tendencies such as prostitution and gambling.On such grounds, it became very easy to create a community of de facto criminals.When examining the relationship between drug use and crime, it is important to establish the direction of causality.This is one of the aspects that both researchers and the media fail to do.Drug addiction is basically a brain disease that changes the functioning of brain.There is an uncontrollable desire to consume drugs, as a result of which addicted people engage in compulsive behavior to take drugs.There is failure to look at the many factors that may be involved in this relationship some of which include historical labelling of drug users as criminals and disproportional reporting by the media. It is important to examine the direction of causality before making any conclusion on drug use and crime relationship and also think of crime (such as violence among alcohol users) as an accepted culture by those who drink. Whereas such an explanation does not shed enough light into this relationship, modern reasoning that heroin and crime are related due to an economic reasoning has not been satisfactory either.This is more due to the fact that researchers fail to consider poly-drug use among criminals thus the contribution of heroin may be exaggerated.
