Information Regarding Drug Testing and Drug Testing Kits

Drug test kits are one of the most efficient ways to test for drug usage both at home and within the workplace. As reported (with information acquired by NADA), " The latest available statistics on drug types, which were commonly misused by Malaysian drug users in 2013, cited opiates (75.07%) as the highest ranked substance, followed by methamphetamines (13.58%), cannabis (8.82%), amphetamine-type substances (ATS) pills (2.23%), and psychoactive or psychopharmaceutical pills (0.22%), although it was not known which substance types were more highly used among drug users of different age groups."

A quick run-down of frequently used drugs within Malaysia
There is a worrying trend of a relatively high relapse rate of 50%- that of which has been seen consistently within the past decades. From January to September of 2012, it was reported that there was a reduction in the number of new and repeated drug cases in Malaysia- 4053 and 2882 respectively (National Anti-Drug Agency, 2012).

With Malaysia being slightly different from other countries, the majority of our drug users tend to lean towards drug usage as a coping mechanism against stress- these are just among professional groups. Aside from that, students attending university and college become involved with drugs due to academic and peer pressures. 

In Malaysia, commonly abuse drugs include opiates, cannabis/ marijuana, and amphetamine-based stimulants (such as Adderall- a drug which was initially intended for use by people who suffered from ADHD). 

The legalisation of marijuana in certain countries has made the drug’s use more socially acceptable. This trend can distract people from marijuana’s addictive potential. Rates of marijuana addiction might also be growing due to increasing potency due to crossbreeding and selective breeding over the past decade.

Studying the impact of group identity of alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana usage among teenagers, it is found that teens within specific "popular" societal groups were more likely to fall into substance use, compared to those in the quiet, and more reserved groups. Other reasons for drug usage include curiosity, rebelling against authority by means of drug usage, or even as an escape/ expression of deviation from traditional normality and values.
