If such association is proven true in future research, further issues will be raised in dealing with this important disorder, including proper planning and evaluation of public health policies in this area.

“…A euforia desencadeada pelo uso reforça e motiva o desejo por um novo episódio de consumo, porém quanto mais rápido o início da ação, maior será a intensidade e menor sua duração, e assim, maior será a chance do indivíduo evoluir para situações de uso nocivo e dependência (16) .
