This was done in the presence of the media to send a clear message to the people, especially the youth, on the administration’s stand on drugs and to make the society better.

  1. What about tobacco and alcohol? One is known to give cancer while the other one is notorious for ruining lives of both addict and his/her immediate family. We will never stop these things as long as we approach the problem with selective bias. More education and regulations are the keys here. Not selective banning and outrage while glorifying others!!
