  1. Initiation into drug abuse : the pathway from being offered drugs to trying cannabis and progression to intravenous drug abuse.

    Article - En anglais

    The aim of the study was to analyse the initiation process into illicit drug use focusing on three endpoints which can be seen as stages in the drug career: being offered drugs, using cannabis and using intravenous drugs.

    Questionnaire data were available on 23 482 men, aged 18-20 years, conscripted for military service in 1969-70.

    The association between family background, social conditions, other licit drug use, emotional control and the three endpoints were analysed.

    Although many conscripts tried cannabis, a smaller number continued with intravenous drug abuse.
