The fact of increasing the drug consumption among young adults is well-known. Accordingly to the official statistics during latest 10 years the amount of registered “addicts” has increased to 60 percent and is as follows 500 thousand people. Nevertheless these numbers are obviously lower because of the fact that the considerable number of drug abused people is not registered in drug abuse centers. For another thing, the consistent classification in the sphere of drug abuse is not chosen: the large part of young adults consumes drugs, smokes “grass”.
