York Wellbeing Lectures
Despite years of prohibition illicit drugs continue to be used by millions of people in the UK. Research on this issue tends to focus on the risks and harms despite the majority of people using drugs for pleasure and fun. Understanding the route from pleasure to harm is critical if we are to think about how to reduce the risks to individuals and distinct groups.
