The Menace of Hard Drugs on Nigerian Youths and Campus Students


The current price of certain cough syrup with codeine have experienced over 300% increment; no thanks to its high demands by youth! An observation of most campus birthday parties, club parties and even normal ‘Beer Parlour’ will leave one wondering what is really happening? As a result of the way young folks both male and female use drugs openly without considering the dangers involved in its usage.

You will find out that most people involved in these acts constitute majorly teenagers just seeking admission into tertiary institutions, undergraduates, fresh graduate and youth corps member. They have made the consumption of these substances look so normal, damning all likely consequences of their actions. A number of young people have missed so many life changing opportunities, did things that they will forever regret, some have even mentally imbalance as a result of the reaction of these drugs.
This is indeed a menace that is capable of hampering the growth of the nation in the nearest future. As a whooping number of teenagers who are expected to be future Presidents, Senators, Governors and the likes are joining the group of illicit drug users. What happens if the dude or chic ordained to make things right in Nigeria is swept away while wallowing in the act?

For the records, drug abuse is the consumption of drug apart from medical need or in unnecessary quantities. It can also be an act of taking drugs in excess or without medical prescription.

Drug is any chemical substance that produces a therapeutic and non-therapeutic effect on the body, it is also a substance which when taken can bring about change or alter the metabolism rate of the body.
