What is more, the rise in drug facilitated sexual abuse, particularly in educational settings, is now a global problem.

Unit 1 - INHALANTS
This form of abuse is often referred to as “Glue Sniffing” or “Solvent Abuse” and is attractive to young adolescents because the inhalants are so cheap and easily purchased.
In fact, most households have an array of inhalants which can be accessed by children, such as cleaning fluids, glues, and marker pens etc.
Unit 2 - MARIJUANA
Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit drug in the United States and Europe. Despite being very dangerous, the number of young people believing marijuana is harmless is increasing.
This book explains the links between this drug, violence, mental health, and terrorism.
This highly destructive stimulant destroys both the users’ skin and their teeth, as well as the mental issues it inflicts. Sadly, it is a common staple amongst those who use it to stay awake, such as students.
Unit 3 - METHAMPHETAMINE
Unit 5 - COCAINE
Cocaine is a stimulant that speeds up your whole body causing your heart to beat faster. It is often consumed with alcohol, which is a depressant that slows the heart; thus, the mixture of the two places great strain on this vital organ.
Unit 6 - CRACK COCAINE
Crack cocaine is the freebase form of cocaine. Crack's popularity, in part, was due to its appeal for drug users seeking an inexpensive, ultra-potent, fast acting high.
Crack is a very dangerous substance due to its powerfully addictive nature. Symptoms of crack abuse may be both physical and psychological.
Unit 7 - HEROIN
As heroin enters the brain it changes back into morphine and binds to the cells' opioid receptors which relate to pain and pleasure. Heroin on its own is highly destructive, however it is not sold in its pure form, but is mixed with other cheaper drugs such as fake fentanyl, leading to thousands of deaths per year.
Unit 8 - SYNTHETIC DRUGS
Also known as designer drugs, these have been developed to circumvent controlling laws. The objective is to achieve the results of illegal drugs with legal chemicals; however, these chemicals have not been designed for human consumption, thus the consequences of consuming them are severe.
Unit 10 -
DATE RAPE DRUGS
DATE RAPE DRUGS
Drugs are used in sex crimes against adults and children. Some offenders use drugs to put the target in the mood for "consensual" sex, not realising the crime is still rape, which might explain their prevelance amongst university students.
