Rajahmundry: Keen vigil to check drug abuses sought

Rajahmundry: Film personalities have demanded strict vigil on import, sale and usage of drugs to solve the problem on a permanent basis.

They said drug abuse has not only affected a section of the film industry, but also professionals, especially from IT sector and students in professional colleges. 

The Film personalities asked for close tab at airports and seaports to avoid smuggling of drugs from abroad and recommended for severe punishment to drug peddlers. 

They sought counselling for drug addicts in the film industry to help them overcome their addiction and lead a normal life. 

They asked the state government to treat drug addicts as victims as they got addicted to drugs to get relief from various pressures they were facing in their day-to-day life and not to treat them as accused. 

They vowed to make all requisite efforts to eradicate substance abuse in the Telugu film industry.
