The youth form the backbone of the country and provide not only political leadership but also shape the future of the country as a whole. The youth, of late, has drifted from the mainstream and have started indulging in the illicit trafficking of drugs, illicit export of drugs and the youth lured by western influences have taken to consumption of drugs to greater heights without knowing the ill effects not only to them but also to their family, society and the nation as a whole.
