The Aim of this study was to evaluate drug use amongst a representative sample of 2,434 students in the municipality of Sao Paulo, linking consumption to the most practiced religions. For this, the "Survey on Drug Use" was implemented to assess the consumption of these substances. The results were: the majority of the sample is Catholic; students who consumed fewer drugs identify themselves Protestant; those who classify themselves as having no religion are amongst those who consumed most drugs in this sample; Those who call themselves practicing, whatever religion it may be, tended to exhibit lower drug use

Keywords : Drugs; religion; adolescence; drugs usage.
