Many young women drug abusers believe taking drugs can help them become slimmer, a survey has found. Of 172 female drug abusers aged between 14 and 21, the Hong Kong Christian Service found that 82 per cent had taken drugs on nights out because they believed dancing all night would reduce their weight.
