The paper deals with problems of the illegal drugs use. The American counterculture is shown as the starting point of the popularization of illegal drugs, especially among young people. The context and the origin of the American counterculture are described along with the values which the movement advocated, with the emphasis placed on the importance of the consumption of illegal drugs as means of liberation from the society which was considered wrong. The downfall of counterculture entails a change in the perception of the consumption of illegal drugs, and this new perception persists today. The emphasis of the paper is on the difference in the consumption of drugs in the American counterculture and today, which is defined in a twofold manner: difference in the type of consumed drugs, and the difference in the motive of consumption. This difference is further corroborated through an analysis of the book Junkie, which shows consumption in the pre-countercultural period, and via an analysis of the movie Trainspotting, which shows consumption in the yuppie, post-countercultural period.
