DRUG USE AND DELINQUENCY RESPONSE 2 Abstract In this paper I’m going to try an explain the main reason for youth drug use. I’m also going to try an explain the link between drug use and delinquency. There are six main reasons that youth does drugs and this is dating back to 1976. There are three main theories that try an explain why drug use cause delinquency. I’m going to try and tell you the reason they say that the drug cause the youth to act out in school. DRUG USE AND DELINQUENCY RESPONSE The first reason is the enhancement or to be in a positive mood when they are around people. The second reason is the social part of their life or to do it because it was the thing back then. The third reason is the coping stage, which is the way that they had to handle everything in their mind. The fourth reason is the conformity or trying to fit in with the in crowd. They try to make friends with those that had a group around them all the time.
