It was observed that the drug addicts are the killer of themselves. They kill themselves silently and this is one kind of suicidal activity. To build a drug free society we have to strictly control drug business. We should give them capital punishment who abuse drugs. family members, friends and teachers should come forward to play a vital role to return the Drug addicts to normal life by counseling. As a human being all of us have duty towards the state and society and we should perform it properly. Half of the crime activities of society is done by drug addicts. Drugs make human brain damaged and collapsed. So they cannot realize the difference between good and bad. Bangladesh is a young populated country. National and international criminals are active to misguide this young people. We should protect our young generation from abuse of drugs.
