Despite strong opposition from health organisations, tobacco and cigarettes remain widely accessible. Some experts believe that the nicotine in tobacco is as highly addictive as cocaine and heroin.
Unfortunately, smoking is harmful not only to the person addicted to tobacco, but also to others in the smoker’s immediate environment. Exposure to second-hand smoke for one hour is roughly the equivalent of smoking half a cigarette.
Illegal drugs are often distributed and sold at nightclubs.
