In total, 7,855 students submitted a questionnaire. Results: The results of the study show that 10 per cent of students who used drugs and about the same percentage that used alcohol had committed substance-related crimes in the current academic year. The most prolific offenders (in relation to both drug and alcohol-related offending) were: males, students in their first year at university, those who frequently went out to socialise, and those in poor physical or mental health. Conclusions: The paper proposes that preventative interventions should address the problem of alcohol and drug-related crime and its consequences.",
