Drug abuse among the youth in Ghana

HA Brown-Acquaye

Abstract


Drug abuse is becoming a serious problem. The course of the alarming rate of the abuse especially among the youth can be traced to the high unemployment among the youth, the frustration of highly qualified students not having access for further education and the general economic situation in the country. Marijuana has been identified as the major drug of abuse among the youth in Ghana. The age of incidence of abuse of marijuana is relatively low, 10 -12 years and experimentation has been found to be the main reason for the start of the abuse.
