Studies say that peer pressure is the biggest reason for anyone to enter into the world of drug abuse, for one is the most experimenting, least inhibited, insignificantly repressive and seeks freedom in every activity that comes across during the school years. These attributes on one hand, makes them ready for the brutally competitive world ahead but on the other hand, put them into the zone of risks and digressiveness also where chances of falling out are high. Therefore, a strong fence which is prevention education is highly needed, to be placed at the right time in an approachable manner.
