More highly educatedpeople taking drugs Done by: Kai Yi
Summary: This article mainly talks about an increasing number of highly educated individuals taking drugs. The Singapore Anti-Narcotics Association (SANA) plans to open a 24-hour drop-in centre and set up a 24-hour hotline. To reach up to more youngsters, SANA will also make use of social media, like Facebook and Twitter.
Opinion: Many educated people have the impulse of consuming drugs because they think that with drugs they could relieve stress. Others consume drugs because of boredom. Thus, I think that SANA should create a greater awareness of the many disadvantages that individuals could face when they take drugs, for example, the association could organize workshops with fun activities for primary school children and secondary school teenagers. They could even reach out to pre-school kids to inculcate important knowledge about drugs as it is always good to start telling the young that drugs are very harmful to our body. They should not take drugs no matter what circumstances they face, so that they would never attempt to consume drugs when they grow older.
