Drug abuse a cause of concern

21 Sep 2016 at 13:15hrs | Views
The striking poverty in Zimbabwe has promoted high drug abuse rate mostly in high density suburbs.

High unemployment rate which has accumulated to over 90% has left more youths finding solace in street, singing in the name of Zim Dancehall.

Every youth in the (ghetto) high density suburb now believe singing and doing drugs is the way to go.

High schools are in trouble with teenagers doing drugs which then results in horrible results in form of unwanted pregnancies, school drop outs and all sorts of problems in the society.

However, many ghetto youths are addicted to drugs hence they end up going insane  therefore it is really a thorn in the flesh for this generation had it been that the economy was functional drug abuse would be minimum.
