There is a stupendous drug problem in Balochistan. An unrestricted supply of drugs has turned a lot of people into drug addicts and has damaged a lot of families. The problems that have arisen cannot be treated by doctors or anyone else unless the victim is willing. 

Addiction to such menacing substances has occupied almost half of the territory in Balochistan. Cigarette smoking, which is also on the rise, is not only a hazard for the person who is smoking it, but also to others around him. The new generation is particularly attracted towards this unhealthy habit. Drugs are not only harming their health but also creating colossal gaps between the users and their families. 

I want to make the government aware of the drug situation in Balochistan. I hope they take timely action towards eliminating drugs.
