It has been found that drug addicts are initiated on this path by their friends or company. Such a phenomenon occurs at school, college or university or at disco, or at a trip of excursion or at some social gatherings.
The major factors leading to drug addiction are lack of parental cure and supervision, lack of moral and religious education, media and pop culture, hatred for any authority, broken homes etc.
To check this alarming increase in the number of people taking drugs, the government has outlawed its abuse with hard penalties. Relentless campaign against drug addiction will yield the desired results. The campaign against drug may start with schools, advertisements, warnings by doctors, and so on. The young ones should be ensured of proper love and care. "Drugs are a waste of time. They destroy our memory and our self-respect and everything that goes along with our self esteem.”
