One of the problems that Mauritius is facing is an increase in drug consumption. Nowadays, children at schools are being exposed to drugs which means that drugs are not only affecting adults but children as well. Different people take drugs for different reasons. For instance, peer pressure, depression, family issues can lead to drug abuse.
Increase awareness about the adverse effects of drugs to youngsters. For instance, sensitization campaigns could be organised in schools to make children more aware about the effects of drugs and thus, children would not be easily influenced to experiment with drugs.
