A report by the consultative committee to combat drug menace in schools has observed that there is a high risk of substance abuse in first and second cycle schools.

It says, the nation cannot and should not be happy with the findings of the committee that was set up by President Akufo-Addo to identify the sources and causes of drug use nationwide. The Graphic says pressure of work has kept many families apart from their children. To the paper, this is compounded by the breakdown of the extended family system. It therefore urges stakeholders to come on board to protect the future of the country since the children are the future of the nation.
