Drugs and health

The existence and use of drugs is an indisputable reality. Nowadays, more than 80 million people in Europe have tried illegal drugs. However, this figure excludes legal drugs such as alcohol, tobacco and sedatives, whose use is much broader.

Using them does not necessarily pose problems, since not all forms of use have the same risks.
