    Default Drug abuse in India

    Prescription drugs like the opiate pethidine have replaced cannabis and heroin as the drugs of choice among young people in India. Most of the teenagers start with cannabis before moving to opiates and prescription drugs and the reason behind this is easy availability of prescription drugs.

    The problem of drug abuse and drug addiction is increasing in India as youngsters are moving towards western culture. In this condition the person cannot withdraw from the habit because it compels the person to go for more. The prime reason behind this is that youngsters get lured into drug abuse because they consider it to be more trendy and happening. The second reason is that we do not have proper drug regulatory authorities to keep a check on the retail shops who without verifying the person or prescription give away such drugs for higher prices.

    Drugs are very dangerous and people should avoid even the trial of such things. I have seen school going people who take drugs and it makes me simply feel pity on such children and their parents who actually do not know what their children are up to. Drug abuse in india is quite common and its the worst part of the school and college going students.
