Young Men Involved in Drug Dealing in the UK


Drug dealing is a serious problem in the UK, and young men are disproportionately affected. According to the National Crime Agency, 40% of people arrested for drug dealing in the UK are under the age of 18.


There are a number of reasons why young men are more likely to become involved in drug dealing. Some young men are drawn to the easy money that drug dealing can bring. Others are exploited by older criminals who groom them into the drug trade. Still others are dealing drugs to cope with mental health problems or to escape difficult home lives.


Whatever the reason, drug dealing can have a devastating impact on young men's lives. It can lead to violence, imprisonment, and even death. It can also damage their relationships with their families and friends.

What Can We Do About It?


There are a number of things that can be done to address the problem of young men involved in drug dealing. These include:

  • Early intervention: It is important to identify young people who are at risk of becoming involved in drug dealing and provide them with early intervention services. These services can help young people to develop the skills and resilience they need to avoid drug dealing.

  • Education and awareness: It is important to educate young people about the dangers of drug dealing and to raise awareness of the signs that a young person may be involved in drug dealing. This can help to prevent young people from becoming involved in drug dealing in the first place.

  • Support for families and communities: It is important to provide support for families and communities that are affected by drug dealing. This can help to break the cycle of drug dealing and to create a more supportive environment for young people.
