Nandana: Let's Fight Drug Menace Together

Drug abuse poses a serious threat to students and adults alike. Drug peddlers lure students with many lucrative offers. It is time awareness is created about this menace. School authorities and parents have a major role to play in guiding children away from drug abuse.

Cultivating these crops illegally and producing drugs threaten the environment, puts the health of users at risk, while the illicit drug trade undermines the laws of the land. Forests are cut down and a lot of water is used to cultivate these crops. This results in deforestation and erosion. The chemicals used to produce cocaine cause further damage  to the environment, as they poison local streams.

Farmers, their families and local communities become poorer, as their land, which is their livelihood, is exploited by drug traffickers. The traffickers typically seek routes where the rule of law is weak. In turn, drug-related crimes deepen and push people to a point of no return. Once drugs enter the markets, the health of consumers is at stake. Drug use also results in many physical and psychological problems, some of which are very serious. Each one of us has a role to play to weed out this danger.
