    Research that has investigated the association between specific drug types and crime has tended to focus on the specific drug type in isolation from other drugs. The main problem with this is that it cannot be assumed that the. association between specific drug use. and crime will be the same regardless of the additional drugs consumed. The. research aimed to investigate whether there was a correlation between number and type of drugs used and involvement in crime. The analysis of multiple drug use is-as based on data collected as Pan of the New English and Welsh Arrestee Drug Abuse Monitoring program in the United Kingdom. The results showed that both the number of drug types consumed and the particular drug type combinations used explained offending rate. The research concluded that the investigation of links between multiple drug use and crime might help inform antidrugs strategies and treatment services.
