Joint fight against drug propaganda
According to independent experts, the number drug addicts in Ukraine – 1.5-2 million people, which is dozens of times higher than the various official figures. The Ministry of Internal Affairs stated that each of the seven grave crimes was committed in the sphere of drug trafficking. The fight against drug addiction is carried out, first of all, at the legislative level: practically in all countries there are strict criminal sanctions for the production and distribution of drugs. Meanwhile, forceful measures do not eliminate the causes of drug addiction. Broad promotion of a healthy lifestyle and drug-free life is of great importance. But most researchers of the problem are still inclined to believe that it is much more effective to provide social conditions in society, which did not promote drug use. This is especially true of the main risk group – young people.

Each of those present had the opportunity to express their position and ways of combating this negative phenomenon in society. Activists of public organizations shared with those present their experience of conducting social activities for young people in order to popularize a healthy lifestyle and prevent thoughts of drug attempts.
