Epidemiology of Dual disorders

Drugs legalization is helpful for medical use of illicit drugs. Drugs commonly considered capable of recreational use include ethanol, cannabis, nicotine, caffeine, and substances within the scope of the United Nations' Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances. In 2012 it was estimated that about 3% to 6% of people use non-legal drugs. Domestic and International law enforcement agencies are occupied with interdiction efforts against illegal drug use, production, and circulation. Recreational drug use is use of a drug with the primary intention to alter the state of consciousness in order to create positive emotions.

The popular concept of this phenomenon puts it closer to a social behaviour that many places around the world tolerate rather than to serious medical conditions. In Australia 86.2% of Australians aged 14 years and over have used cannabis one or more times in their lives. In the 2000s, the number of Americans who had used cannabis increased over twentyfold. Alcoholism is the most widely seen disorder. In 2010, the FBI reported that between the years 2006 and 2009, the number of arrests for marijuana custody, which had been banned throughout the United States. Despite heading that drug use was greatly growing among America's youth during the late 1990s, surveys have suggested that only as much as 4% of the American population had ever smoked marijuana by 2010.
