    • Abstract:
      There is a persistent opinion that the spread of narcotics abuse is taking in more and more young people and having an impact on the economic, political, and cultural development of society. Data obtained by sociologists and criminologists make it possible to single out the factors, conditions, and channels of the spread of psychoactive substances [PAS]. Until recently, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) was not counted among the regions where narcotics abuse was mounting. At the same time, the crime situation is characterized by the same tendencies that are prevalent in the country as a whole: a rise in registered crimes, basically as the result of the increase in violations of the laws stemming from greed, and crimes linked to the illegal circulation of narcotics. Data from a study of substance abuse among young people in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) show that it increases when social and economic opportunities are lacking, and when supplies of drugs increase. Programs to combat this need to be more comprehensive and more coordinated on both local and national levels.
