A victim of their naiveté

Newspost

March 9, 2018

Two years back, a shocking report that was presented before the Senate Standing Committee on Interior and Narcotics Control uncovered an even more shocking fact that more than 50 percent students of different private schools in Islamabad were addicted to drugs. The worrisome point is that this situation is not limited to Islamabad. For some reasons, drugs and other illegal substances have easily made their way to educational institutions. For drug suppliers, impressionable children are an easy target.

This shows that the authorities concerned have failed to tackle drug problems. Substance abuse is the prime reason behind the social and moral decay through which our society has been going. It is time the government took action to reduce drug addiction among young students. There should be a well-thought-out plan that should be implemented to reduce drug use.
