Main reson is the youths want a hi fi life style and most of the times their craze for desires and aspirations shatters their dream. Drug use can have an immediate impact on your body and mind but it can also affect your future and your relationship with other. Hence lets give up and lead a healthy life

A stringent action may at least reduce drug abusers.People who live with substance dependence have a higher risk of all bad outcomes including unintentional injuries, accidents, risk of domestic violence, medical problems, and death so on . Even after seeing such incidents we never learn but ruin our life.
