Drug abuse is a patterned use of a drug in which the user consumes the substance in amounts or with methods which are harmful to themselves, others, and/or society.

Drug abuse of notably alcohol has existed for a long time. See also Prohibition and the "See also" links there regarding various less politically correct related topics.

More recently, in particular during and after the 1960s counter-culture, many new drugs have become available and problematic.

Some new drugs in the Western world, such as khat, are due to the mass immigration of groups traditionally using it.

More generally on immigration and illegal drugs, see Race and crime: Immigration and crime: Immigrants, drugs, and smuggling.

Drugs may be illegal and their abuse cause effects such as providing large income for organized crime in general.

Other drugs are legal prescription drugs, but with this abused on a large scale, and possibly also leading to illegal drug abuse. Recently, notably opioid abuse by Whites have been discussed. See the "External links" section.

There have been claims of the opioid crisis having "peaked", but this has been criticized as death statistics improving due to better treatment of overdoses, but this not reflecting decreasing usage.[1]

There are various accusation against the Jewish Sassoon and Sackler families, as also discussed in the "External links" section.
