The Social Problems on Young People which Related to Crime, Alcoholism, Drug-Taking and Desperation Study Case: Overcoming the issues by controlling drugs of free circulation Pandu Rizqi Akbar (016201100038)
Nowadays, young people in particular are turning to crime and level of vandalism and street crime has gone up. There is little discipline in schools. Alcoholism is on the increase too, again particularly among young people, and drug-taking is a big problem. One reason for the increase in crime and breakdown of order could be the high level unemployment on the planet; many young people have nothing to do, and have turned to crime out of boredom, hopelessness or desperation. The purpose of the paper is twofold: first, to examine the social and economic impact of drug abuse from a broad international perspective. Secondly, based on that analysis, to suggest how problems of drug abuse prevention and control can be addressed in a constructive, coordinated manner. The paper concerns primarily narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances but also includes, where appropriate, information on problems related to the abuse of other addictive substances such as alcohol and tobacco. It is divided into two main sections. Part one discusses the social impact of drug abuse and its consequences for families, health, education, crime and employment. Part two summarizes the information presented in this paper in order to reach certain conclusions. It does this by highlighting the implications of drug abuse for the major themes of the World Summit for Social Development: poverty, employment and marginalization. It also contains recommendations addressed to the World Summit to help increase the effectiveness of international efforts to prevent and reduce drug abuse problems. Part 1
