Drug abuse is a growing societal problem, particularly affecting youth and juveniles who are vulnerable due to their social circumstances. This research paper seeks to investigate the factors contributing to children's drug abuse and its consequences. It discusses how adolescents who misuse drugs often become entangled in a cycle of drug-related crimes to sustain their addiction. The study also addresses the increasing threat of substance misuse among children, which negatively impacts their physical, psychological, and social development, hindering the acquisition of essential life skills. Additionally, the paper examines the legal framework in India related to drug misuse. It focuses on understanding the genetic, psychosocial, and socioeconomic factors associated with drug dependence in children. India requires further research to assess the current state of the drug epidemic and explore potential solutions to this pressing issue.
