Despite these figures, the doctor expressed the view that the young people of. today are more open, knowledge- able and morally stronger than the youth of a generation ago. "Education about drugs is the most important thing. We must with tobacco and alcohol. The] major problem seems to be that of contamination, where the drug is either not pure or mixed with something else. Several reasons why young people turn to drugs were sug- gested. One of the main ones is curiosity, a major factor also with sexual experimentation. "Our young people today meet their challenges head said the doctor', "while their parents were content to pretend that a problem did no1, exist." Resentment and hypocrisy were also mentioned as being important factors. "Young peo- ple are not prepared to adopt their parents dual standards cH what is said and done. They are idealists." The 'dare' factor is also often present When asked way young people often turned to hart drugs such as speed and LSI when aware of the potenlia danger, Dr. Kowalchuk sug gested this may be related l< the Freudian death vish.

"Marijuana is not nearly as dangerous as stated the doctor, "but this does not mean I think it should be legal- ized. If marijuana io legalized then Ihe prohibitive aspect will be removed, and youngsters may well turn to more potent and dangerous drugs by way of a challenge."
