Drug menace

The use of drugs is as old as human civilization itself. Earlier also people used to take intoxicants of many types in all parts of the world. But they consumed them only on some festive occasions but as time passed and life became complex and busy the leisure time got reduced and intoxicants started to be used as per ones choice.
Later new type of intoxicants and drugs were invented with the progress of science. Today, use of drugs and intoxicants is so common that it has become a world wide problem. Now several young boys and girls are becoming drug addicts. In India even students have started taking drugs as fashion or out of a craze for experimentation.
The only solution of this problem is self control and becoming a responsible person.
