The Normalisation of Recreational Drug Use (Part 2)

In this Briefing we continue to look at the seminal research study conducted by Professor Howard Parker and colleagues which provided essential insights into British youth culture and the role of drugs and alcohol among adolescents during the 1990s.

Howard Parker and colleagues described four distinct drug pathways that young people in their study had taken during their adolescence. These are considered in this Background Briefing.

“… today’s young drug takers are of both sexes, come from all social and educational backgrounds and are in most other respects conventional.”
