Summary/Abstract: Currently, the traffic and drug use has passed the stage of a simple phenomenon and is one of the most exciting and worrying problems facing civilization worldwide. Contemporary Romanian society faces major transformations in all spheres of economic and social life, which generated economic and social insecurity, suspicion and frustration, a sense of discouragement and even inadequacy. Behaviorally, these perceptions and attitudes materialize also in social deviant behaviors, in which a particular place occupies the drug use with negative effects on the state of the individual and on his economic and social relations. Illegal drug use is a recognized factor contributing to the global burden of disease and increased costs to combat this phenomenon. The paper presents a brief comparative analysis of the social and economic effects generated by the drug use phenomenon in Romania and the European Union.
