Youth Attitudes on Drugs. Analytical Report

Drugs and drug-related problems are major concerns for EU citizens and pose a threat to the safety and health of European society and its citizens. The use of drugs, particularly among young people, is at a historically high level. The European Commission has been studying the drug phenomenon in EU Member States for several years. In 2002 and 2004, surveys were conducted among young people in the then 15 EU Member States (Special Eurobarometer No172 and Flash Eurobarometer No158). In  2008, a survey was conducted among a similar group in the 27 EU Member States.
