Research conducted by the Iran Drug Control Headquarters (IDCH) recently, shows that 28% of Iranians aged 15 to 64 showed an inclination for illegal drugs as they believed that “drugs such as crystal meth can help concentration, and be used as a study aid,” said Hamid Sarami, the IDCH deputy of research and training. “The study also indicated that 17% had a powerful tendency to try illegal drugs themselves,” Salamat News quoted him as saying. He added that 69% of the respondents were ready to contribute their share in fighting the problem of drug addiction. The study also suggested that prevalence rate of drug abuse is the highest among young adults between the ages 21 and 24.
