Once, my teacher had said, "Addiction to drugs is a mother of crimes. When I started working in the field of addiction, I realized that drug addiction is indeed a mother of all crimes and sins. In Pakistan, numbers of crimes are increasing with the rapid increase in drug abusers.
Drug abuser usually gets involved in theft, robbery to get money not only for drugs but also for different groups. Sometimes, they kill their family members to get money. It was reported that a drug addict killed his two daughters and wounded his wife and another daughter for not giving him money for drugs. A drug addict killed another drug addict to over heroin token.
It was also reported in newspaper that money gained from drug trafficking is being utilized in terrorist activities to destabilize the country. Drug addicts seem to be involved in terrorist activities.
Drugs are also being commonly used by drivers of public transport. Sometimes, their intoxication became the cause of road accidents.
We all must request to government, non-governmental agencies and media to pay attention to this issue. Because, addiction of drug is not only a disease but it opens the door of other crimes which are destabilizing our whole society.
