Parents, teachers, all those in authority, including the government need to take the matter very serious. Or else it will destroy our youth, the future hope of this country. The issue on substances of abuse can never be over emphasized.
There is need to put things and actions into place so as to prevent the abuse of drugs among our young people. The issue of peer group comes into play when it comes to the abuse of substances. But the actions played by parents at home during the formative stages of the children is a very strong risk factor. The effects of peer group is usually the last straw that breaks the camel’s back.
