I recently read an article about how drug addiction is thriving among northern women and youths due to peer pressure. This is an alarming situation and it is sad to see how vulnerable young people are being taken advantage of. We need to be more aware of the dangers of peer pressure and how it can lead to addiction. We need to be proactive in educating our youth about the dangers of drug use and provide them with the support they need to make healthy choices. We also need to be more supportive of those who are struggling with addiction and provide them with the resources they need to get help. It’s time for us to take a stand against drug addiction and to help those who are affected by it.
