    Once addicted no stops and it is almost irreversible. its elders responsibility to have strict low and order inside home then at schools and the public places.if not we will soon have lots of walking dead in this country!

    Sorry but that's just ignorant. Current addiction studies equate a lack of connection to addiction. Successful drug policies are designed to assist people in overcoming their dependcies through assistance and empathy. How does strict law and order help build connections and create empathy? It usually does the opposite. These laws seem more to do with creating news to distract people from other topics, than helping our country.

    Time to ban facebook

    Roshanaly Monday, 04 March 2019 11:59 AM

    It will not stop the use of drugs. Actually with the help of facebook only Police were able detect more unfamiliar drugs.

    If you ban Facebook they will make group in WhatsApp then what ?

    Harin Monday, 04 March 2019 05:28 PM

    Not to ban Facebook it's time for the parents to be parents not just loitering after leaving the children in schools and not dating the fathers or mothers of other children.

    Facebook has nothing to do with these parties. Anyone can advertise events or create an event on FB. Then if you apply the same logic if I call or sms to invite friends to a party would that be a Dialog or mobitel party?
