Demand and harm reduction strategies are of global public health importance. A comprehensive package needs to include efforts to stop or reduce production and trafficking of illicit drugs (supply reduction) combined with the prevention of drug use and treatment and harm reduction.

The danger arises when we use a substance or thing in an uncontrolled, compulsive way despite the physical, psychological or social harm it causes. In most societies, many individuals will consume alcoholic beverages and others will use illicit psychoactive substances. Individuals have learned that using psychoactive substances makes them feel good. However, the consumption of alcohol or drugs may result in the development of dependence and addiction for a sizeable minority. The nature and extent of the problem will depend upon the individual, the type of psychoactive active substance(s) and the environment.

6% of the adult population can be classified as problem drug users (UNODC 2008). In 2007, opium cultivation increased in both Afghanistan and Myanmar. With regard to cocaine, cultivation increased in Bolivia, Peru and especially Colombia, but yields declined, so production remained stable. Although the cannabis market is stable, Afghanistan has become a major producer of cannabis resin, perhaps exceeding Morocco. Indoor cultivation of cannabis is a growing business in developed countries, and more potent strains of cannabis herb are being produced.
