About 30% of adults in Britain have used illicit drugs at some time in their lives, but misuse of prescription drugs (such as benzodiazepines and barbiturates) is probably even more widespread. Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug. About 100 000 people misuse heroin (diamorphine), and an unknown but increasing number use other drugs such as ecstasy and amphetamines.
