How to use "Drug abuse" in context?
Drug abuse can mean something very different depending on the person and what substance they are abusing. According to SAMHSA, illicit drugs are drugs that are not authorized for use by the government for any purpose. These drugs can include marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and others. Illicit drugs are typically more expensive and more difficult to obtain than drugs which are sanctioned by the government.
Marijuana is the most commonly abused illicit drug in the United States. According to SAMHSA, marijuana use has increased among both young and older adults, and among both men and women. The rate of marijuana use among high school students has quadrupled since the 1960s.
