Anti-Drug Focusing On Breaking Drug Trend Among Youth in Guyana
Over the years many young people have been caught in the trap as couriers to traffic drugs and other illicit substance out of Guyana.
But as Guyana joins the rest of the world in observance of International anti- drug day, the focus is on raising the awareness about drugs especially trafficking in narcotics.
At an event organized by the youth services department of the Ministry of Culture Youth and sport students were targeted as the organizers try to break what seems to be a trend among young people becoming hook on drugs.
The anti- drug day was held under the theme “Life does not rewind- choices, decisions and consequences”. The organizers believe that some young people are also vulnerable because in some cases they are encouraged to make bad choices. Drug trafficking has always been a challenge for countries around the globe.
