Tirupati: Tirupati: Former Andhra Pradesh Assembly Speaker Dr Agarala Eshwar Reddi observed that youth were addicted to drugs.
He was addressing a meeting at AER College here on Sunday to mark the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.
UNO published reports on ill effects of drug abuse and United Nations Office of Drugs and Crimes adopted a resolution in 1987 to intensify the mission. It decided to celebrate the Day as the International Day against Drug Abuse, he said.
Today most of the countries are depending on income coming from sale of illicit liquor. Today much of the revenue is brought only because of sale of liquor. Drug abuse is idyllic happiness and the abusers live in fool’s paradise enjoying idyllic happiness.
Even if they want to kick the habit they are not able to come out of it, he said adding that the solution would be a stronger excise policy. There is large scale smuggling of mafia products entering the country from Pakistan. Even China is pumping all such drugs to Arunachal Pradesh, he pointed out.
