Street Drug use has a wide range of definitions related to taking a psychoactive drug or performance enhancing drug for a non-therapeutic or non-medical effect. Some of the most commonly abused drugs include: amphetamines; barbiturates; benzodiazepines; cocaine; methaqualone; and opium derives alkaloids.
Use of these drugs may lead to criminal penalty in addition to possible physical, social, and psychological harm, both strongly depending on local jurisdiction. Other definitions of drug abuse fall into four main categories: public health definitions, mass communication and vernacular usage, medical definitions, and political and criminal justice definitions.
An estimated 4.7% of the global population aged 15 to 64, or 185 million people, consume illicit drugs annually.
