Nowadays, people in all communities take drugs to A certain extent, however younger groups are practicing intake of drugs either legally or illegally. It is claimed by sociologists that their closest family members and others surrounding them play a role in their interest for unhealthy substances and affect children in a wrong way. This essay will discuss some possible causes that create side effects and secondly, suggest some actions that are necessary to be taken to prevent youths from abusing drug. Directors and tutors at school do not warn children about disadvantages of drugs that children are very curious at their teens and likely to try any form of drug without being aware of its possible dangers. Another reason why illegal drugS is used widely is that those children have easy access to it. According to the local police report in 2017, THE majority of illegal drug users claimed that they had the idea of using when they were teenagers. In order to stop misuse of drug, schools should give a knowledge about bad consequences of taking harmful substance such as marijuana and also illegal drug dealers should be IMPRISONED. That way, youths will be more aware and prevent both themselves and their friends from BECOMING addictED to dangerous medicine. In my country, for instance, primary schools organize a special day for fighting drug misuse every year in cooperation with police officers and this helped to decrease drug-related crimes significantly last year. In conclusion, lack of preventive action by educators and the fact that illegal drugS ARE sold easily by dealers are causing many people at young age to become addictED to drugS and the best suggestions to this problem would be giving knowledge about adverse results of misusing drugS and cutting DOWN ON ILLEGAL saleS. of it.
