Drug Crimes in Canada Cause Continuing Problems for Small Communities
Date:7/8/2009

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The Narconon drug rehab program has noticed a trend of many drug addicts being involved with drug related charges due to their addiction. "You can have the everyday functioning addict who is battling a drug addiction, and just one day gets caught by police for possession of a small amount," comments Nick Hayes, a representative of Narconon Trois-Rivieres. "This is an all too common situation for many people who are involved in a drug addiction." More people are using illicit drugs in Canada, in fact Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada, where the Narconon drug rehab program is located, is one of the leading cities in Canada for drug crimes. "There are so many youth in Trois-Rivieres who are addicted to different drugs like speed, ecstasy, marijuana, and even cocaine. These teens get caught up with the law and start heading down the wrong path at a very young age," says Nick.

With Canada being one of the top distributors and producers of synthetic drugs, according to the United Nations 2009 Drug Report, it makes sense for the illicit drug crimes to be on a continuous rise in the country. Even though marijuana is still the number one drug responsible for the majority of the drug crimes in Canada, other drugs such as ecstasy, crystal meth and cocaine, are catching up and are responsible for more drug crimes each year. Statistics Canada indicated drug crimes reaching over the 100,000 mark and that this was combined with the crime rate reaching a thirty-year low. This is an unusual turn that the crime rate reached a thirty-year low, but illicit drug crimes reach a thirty-year high. Various police forces believe that this is due to the police coming down on drugs that have caused opposite trends.

Victoria and Abbotsford, both located in British Columbia, and Trois-Rivieres and Gatineau, both located in Quebec, followed on the list. Youth drug crimes made up 19% of all the cases in Canada, while two-thirds of the drug crimes in Canada all involved marijuana.
