When will police take strict measures to keep narcotics out of these beach parties? Organisers should be named and shamed and banned.

Drug is destruction.People get addicted to these pills and ice and so called shits even without knowing that. People started spending thousands and thousands for this pleasure and this is where they gonna end their lives too. Side effects are so dangerous. And these were initially used for the Japanese suicide squad for not sleeping and fighting till death.
