Dangers of Drug Abuse On Nigerian Students - ETCSINES

In every society, they are things to look out for; one of such is drug abuse. The reason we have to look out for it is because of the danger it poses to our country. Drug abuse has affected the growth of some major part of our economic that it will only take both human and spiritual effort to curb it.

Drug abuse is one of the top problems confronting the nation today especially among the youth. Incidences of drug abuse and related anti-social behavior have tremendously increased in recent years. This has become a matter of concern to the government, parents, teachers, Non-governmental organizations and all other relevant agencies. It is more prevalent than parents suspect. Parents do not recognize the extent of drug use and as a result, some young people think they can use drugs with impunity.

Statistics have shown that drug barons prefer recruiting their traffickers from the ages of 15 to 35 years, most of whom are either unskilled, unschooled or students or the unemployed. There are several factors, which can influence the abuse of drugs among youths. The major ones are: peer pressure, weak parental control, child abuse, imitation, emotional stress, truancy among students, and the availability of the drugs and the ineffectiveness of the laws on drug trafficking.

The effects of drug abuse on an individual therefore form the basis for its cumulative effects on the society. This is the major danger of drug abuse.
