Some 30 per cent of surveyed students have used medications prescribed by their GP to ‘get high’, while 18 per cent have used non-prescription medication to do so, data exclusively obtained by the Medical Independent reveals.

Findings from the National Student Drugs Survey, due to be published in full in September, show that in less than two hours, students can gain access to potentially harmful prescription medicines.
