Forty-four percent of Norwegian students know about drug use during school hours, according to a new study from the organization, Actis.

The study was conducted among youth aged 15 to 20 years. Six percent said they felt unsafe because of other students’ drug use at school. Four per cent responded that they have experienced that rushed students interfere with their teaching, VG reports.

“It is worrying that more than four out of ten students are aware of the use of drugs during school hours,” said Acting General Pernille Huseby, Actis, the drug field’s cooperative body.

She added that students are entitled to a drug-free learning environment.

“Corresponding drug use in an adult workplace would be completely unacceptable,” Huseby told the newspaper.
