Drugs and students

SMOKING is a craze among students, and this is the first step towards the use of drugs. Recently a student of mine, Akif Javeed (the only child of his parents) died due to drug addiction.

There are a number of students in our colleges and universities who are involved in drug addiction.  Our law-enforcement agencies have failed to stop the use of drugs in our society.

The government should check the use of drugs among students in universities and colleges.
