The phenomenon of drug consumption is not a solved problem. Cannabis is the illegal psychoactive drug with the highest prevalence in the world, in Europe, and in Spain; where the Basque Country registers the highest national cannabis consumption. The use of amphetamines rose in the country in 2016 and, in this same year, ecstasy was estimated to be consumed by more than 20 million people around the world. The influences that act as risk factors for the use of drugs are multidisciplinary and the adolescents are particularly vulnerable. The impact on public health is due to the numerous social, physical and psychological negative consequences that derive from these illicit substances.
