    'Intoxicated stamps"? What had the stamps consumed to become intoxicated?

    Not tobacco lobby but our Police and Drug Enforcement. They shout from rooftops they arrested so many daily with few mlligrams but have the Police asked questions and go up the ladder to the final source - the big time importers. Never because they get their cut and the importer gets another few poor street vendors. The game goes on and people cheer that so and so arrested with few mg.

    The future of Sri Lanka. Drug use is a widespread problem in our Island currently and is a menace which needs to be controlled. I wonder where this will lead our nation.

    In the days gone bye , the youth in the villages were un-corrupted and well behaved. Sadly ,even as far as Hali Ella the menace of drugs and crime have hit the village community in the face.
