Brief Answer:
Certain drugs can be related to stroke.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Stroke risk is related directly to high blood pressure, smoking.

Stroke in young people in a number of cases is related to Cocain use, other drugs are less accused.

Drugs abuse is a bad habit not only related to stroke, but STD, dependence, and heart attack.

I recommend you to stay away from drugs.

Hope this helps. Keep staying healthy.
