No, I’m not going to say anything like “think about your future” or “Why it is harmful to your health” and stuff like that.
Drugs have always been a problem to our society. The fact that even schools and MNC’s are part of this system is troubling and what is even more disturbing is when a 9th class kid sends a message like this to a Drug Peddler.
“I liked the drug. It gave me a nearly 12-hour high. I want more, can u arrange?”
This is enough proof that our country is in middle of a serious drug crisis and it is happening everywhere. Just listen to what a local news channel had to say about drug addicts.
The recent drug bust which made headlines in every possible newspaper in Hyderabad highlights this issue. Reportedly “In a major drug bust in Hyderabad, A gang of three members (a goan and two Hyderabadis) imported drugs from Chicago through courier and sold it to school kids, MNC employees and wait for it, “Tollywood hotshots” (no cookies for guessing)”. Around 20 Lakhs(700 Dots) worth Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD) and 1.4 lakh worth Methylene-dioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) or also prominently known as “Ecstasy”. Remember the 9th class kids whatsapp message above? That was allegedly retracted from the seized peddlers arrested yesterday.
Another message allegedly read “This blank cheque is yours if you can arrange 5 more dots” sounds filmy right? But that is the scenario yesterday and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Though local news channels and government has been promoting the disadvantages of drug use and helping victims of drug abuse, as long as the fault in system isn’t rectified we are to hear more of such happenings.
