“In Cabic’s work so far, the company have observed the youth across the country is actively engaged in severe drug abuse substances like tramadol, cannabis, wee or marijuana and sniffing of glue among other harmful drugs which has become of great concern to CABIC promotion and management” – He stated in his address.

According to statistics from the NACOB – Narcotic Control Board, about fifty thousand (50,000) people in Ghana, particularly the young are in drug abuse with the use of marijuana and cocaine by the youth in junior and senior high schools and the tertiary level are on the ascendency. The survey also suggests that out of the total number of 50,000 drug users in Ghana, 35,000 were students from Junior/Senior high schools and tertiary institutions aged between 12 and 35years while the remaining 15,000 were adults with 9,000 being males and 6,000 females. It has been argued that much like in the United States, drug awareness programs and luxury drug rehab centers will be needed to combat the growing crisis.
