Parents are leading with bad examples and they have failed to lead their children in the right part. Nowadays parents drink and abuse drugs in front of their kids and the process kids develop a tendency of emulating what their parents are doing.

Local administration and leaders have relaxed towards the war on drugs and in the process providing space for drug and substance abuse in society.
