Practical implications - In Britain, levels of youthful drug taking remain at historically relatively high levels, with recent decreases at least in part probably due to a cohort effect of the drug-involved generation who were teenagers in the 1990s moving into their 30s. Until such research is conducted, the hypothesised relationship between illicit drug use and political behaviour remains a matter of conjecture. Glasgow: Glasgow Drugs Prevention Team.

In this scoping review we focused on the role of sport and organised physical activity in helping to prevent and treat mental health problems in young people, particularly in the 14-25 age group.

The general well-being of British adolescents has been the topic of considerable debate in recent years but too often this is based on myth rather than fact. We have shown how drug trying and drug use increase across adolescence and illustrated how currently over half of British adolescents try illicit drugs and even by 18 up to one in five are recreational drug users, mainly of cannabis.
Toronto: National Institute on Mental Retardation. Drugs education is not the likely cause of the post-2000 downward trend. The authors present the results of a five year longitudinal study into young people and drug taking. Results The analysis resulted in the development of three discursive frameworks that demonstrate the different ways in which illicit drug use can be legitimised.
