Patiala MP reiterates demands to decriminalise drug addicts, legalise opium

Patiala, Oct 3 (UNI) Reiterating his demands to decriminalise the drug addicts, legalise and regulate the supply of opium and its husk through government owned vends, Patiala MP Dr Dharamvir Gandhi on Wednesday slammed the political leaders, bureaucrats and police opposing its legalisation saying that they were favouring drug mafia responsible for the entire drug menace in Punjab, which has taken toll of thousands of Punjabis ever since promulgation of NDPS Act of 1985.

In a statement here, the MP questioned those opposing his demands to explain as to why there was no drug problem in Punjab 30 years back when the common man's recreational substances like opium and opium husk were freely available in the state. The number of consumers was way less as of today and there was no health issue because of drugs in Punjab.
