The Promotion of Drug Abuse - PO*

  • VC Allen


The problem of drug abuse is both international and multifactorial. Traditional approaches toward finding a solution have so far achieved little. Lateral thinking, a recent concept providing freedom from the constraints of logic, offers the basis for a different kind of evaluation of the problem. The normal concepts are reversed and one starts with the proposition of promoting  drug abuse. In defining a promotional programme one becomes increasingly aware of those elements which are important contributory factors. The solution to some parts of the problem becomes self-evident and new insights into other facets are suggested.
