LICIT AND ILLICIT DRUGS IN CANADA

Licit and Illicit Drugs in Canada draws together data from an array of sources to document trends in drug use in Canada. In this report the distinction between illicit and licit drugs is predominantly historical and legal in nature - rather than purely pharmacological. As such, chapters one through four focus on the use and effects of selected "licit" drugs, in particular, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, analgesics and amphetamines. Chapters five through eight summarize recent Canadian data on a range of "illicit" drugs, including cocaine, marijuana, hallucinogens, heroin and volatile substances.
