Drug And Drug Abuse

DRUG IS ANYTHING that is taken into the body that affect the normal functioning of the body. Drug abuse is the use of drugs for any purpose other than for whet is intended. In most of schools especially one of our local schools, last year it was happen that most of teh students use drugs e.g bhang, alcohol,tobacco etc. In the school, it is said that students used regularly which affects most of them. One of the students couldn't concentrate in class. He was just seeing hallucinations until when the school community decided to drop him out of school. Another student was completely mad and his brains were completely affected. Some of the students drop out of school leading to prostitution and theft and marriage and premature pregnancy. The community sat down and decided to come with ways of preventing this behavior like people should avoid using illegal drug. In case of this they should be punished. to use, their leisure time productively and tell them on the dangers of drugs.
