The problem of drug addiction is a global one for society, since the essential sign is more socioeconomic than medical and legal, requiring the fight not with drug addicts, but with drug addiction as a phenomenon. They are implemented through public policy as a focused activity of public and private structures, cooperation with civil society in the development and implementation of methods, mechanisms and tools for the operation of legal, economic, social, psychological, medical and legal, other components and is the optimal synthesis of objective trends in social development and subjective judgments of people about their own interests in society. The sovereign legal policy for the prevention, combating and combating the illicit trafficking of narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances, their analogues or precursors should be formed both on balanced approaches, clearly defined targets aimed at significantly reducing non-medical drug use, and eliminating financial, organizational , technical, informational and other prerequisites for the functioning of drug crime.
