Drug crimes and abuses are increasing in a society. This research opens up with the concept of drug crimes and abuses still existing in our society. This research clearly shows the problems with young generations who are deeply addicted and being a part of drug crimes and shows repercussions on our young generation. The author has carefully examined the issue and provides a concise description of each step of drug-related crimes and abuse that exists in contemporary society. Many teenagers use drugs "because others are doing it"—or because they are afraid of being rejected from their peer group of drug users. Addiction to alcohol and drugs can result from mental health difficulties. In this research the author discusses various causes and effects of drug abuses and also mentioned some remedies to solve this problem. The author has further discussed about the basic objective regarding the existing laws and their role in the community. Numerous factors link drugs and crime. The use, possession, manufacture, or distribution of drugs with an abuse potential is illegal in most states. Drugs with the ability to be abused include cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and amphetamines. The current study is being conducted in the Indian context to ascertain the causes and potential treatments on how drug abuses and crimes can be diminished in the society and to what extent this effects our younger generation.
