End Drug/Substance Abuse in India

This petition had 33 supporters

Drug abuse is at an all time high, with over 3 million drug addicts in India. 
This issue requires immediate attention, stricter laws and better rehabilitation facilities. The number - and demographic - of drug users is increasing.
Due to changing perceptions and glamorization of drug use in pop culture, drug abuse among the youth is at an all time high. 
Drug abuse among children is also existent; according to recent studies, one in every five of India's drug addicts is a child. This issue is mainly prevalent among children living in poor conditions. 
Drug use and abuse leads to various health issues. It also leads to an increase in violence and crime. 
Even with the existence of laws such as the NDPS Act, the use of drugs continues to grow. 
Therefore, there must be stricter laws and better policing to nab smaller distributors in order to limit access to drugs.
