Shiraz University students' attitude towards drugs: an exploratory study
AbstractUsing a self-reported questionnaire, 213 Shiraz University students were surveyed about their attitudes towards drug use [cigarettes, alcohol, opium, heroin, cannabis] and their use of drugs [ever or during the 6 months prior to the study]. About 52% had smoked cigarettes, 25% had tried alcohol, 21% opium and 12% cannabis; only one student had used heroin. Those who had used drugs obtained them from and used them with friends or acquaintances. The majority of students wanted more information on drugs, and considered television and films the best medium for providing information. Drug use among Shiraz University students is still lower than that reported in the West [except opium]. Drug prevention programmes relevant to Iranian culture should be devised
