STUDENT DRUG USE BECOMING RECKLESS?

An article in today's Guardian suggests that drug use amongst the UK's student population has gone beyond recreational and has become reckless.

Citing the results of The Mixmag/ Guardian Drug Survey, the article suggests a line has been crossed from simply getting messy towards dangerous behaviour.

The article goes on to cite instances of students soling themselves after ketamine use, a student who had a heart attack at 25 after snorting five grams of cocaine and people who have had to have their bladders removed due to ketamine use.

The results of our recent Mixmag/ Guardian Drug Survey identified a new breed of high risk drug taker with one fifth of those completing the survey admitting to taking a mystery white powder.

But what do you think of the story? Are students really becoming more reckless with drug use or does this behaviour just mirror what has been going on for decades?

Let us know your thoughts below.
