DRUGS are eating away our Youth

19 February 2013, 16:00
We as big sisters, brothers, and parents do not have any control as to what our youth get up to when they are out of our sight.

If only we could have our eyes on them 24/7. Do you know what the youngsters keep themselves busy with? Do you really want to know?

DRUGS! Yes drugs, this has been kept under the carpet for far too long, and it’s about time that we as a nation bring this crisis to light and  do something about it.  So I  took the lead and did some research as to what the stats are on teenagers using drugs, but SAPS said that they can’t disclose this information to me as it is classified, that news shook me because it is my right  to know what  the percentage is  in my community, in order to show the government that this very serious and it is growing by the day.

Before we find a solution to the problem, let us look at the cause of it.

I have found a website that can supply you with more info as to what drives our teenagers to use drugs www.casapalmera.com
