It’s the practical approach

source:toi on line

The government has begun to look for alternate ways to deal with drug abuse, and little wonder. With an estimated 7.5 crore drug addicts in India at last count – that’s just the formal figure – it isn’t a problem that’s going to go away soon. Neither has legislation providing for harsh punishment succeeded in preventing the growth of the problem. That’s the reason the government is preparing to change the way it addresses the issue. The new approach will acknowledge that controlling the harmful consequences of drug use rather than putting an end to drug use altogether is a more realistic approach. This is a paradigm shift that has already taken place in Europe – and it is much needed here.
