Int’l Day against drug abuse
VINOD C DIXIT
26th June is observed as the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking as an expression of the determination of the international community to strengthen coordinated action and cooperation to achieve the goal of an international society free of drug abuse.
Drug trafficking is one of the major crimes against humanity. Killing someone or helping someone to kill himself is equal to a crime. This is what common sense and human sense says. The ones who are trafficking and helping such drugs reach each and every corner of the country are committing a big crime. Drugs and drug dealing is a scourge that can bring down a mature and intelligent society to intolerable levels of depravity. It is better to nip this crime in bud so that our country doesn’t follow the horrible western malady.
There should be no leniency when talking about peddlers and pushers who destroy the victim, his family and put him (or her) into unalterable habit, which will push the individual to all crimes including murder and rape.
If we need to stop this menace from spreading, we need harsh steps and stringent punishments. Only love and affection can help the youth from falling into clutches of drugs. Societal control is necessary along with legal skeleton. Let us develop our lives, our communities, our identities… without drugs.” — Ahmedabad, India
