Ambala city witnessed the loud voice of students saying 'No to Drugs' in Haryana

Drugs mess with your mind
Drugs mess with your body
Drugs mess with your wallet
Drugs mess with your life
Drugs mess with your society
Drugs mess with your hopes and dreams.

In an entirety, drug abuse plays with your personality as a whole and makes it worthless, emptied of happiness, courage, confidence and self respect.

In a study conducted in Ambala, Haryana, a stratified random sample of 1500 school students (13-19 years; 7th -12th grades), which approximately accommodates 60% of it's youth population in the state of Haryana was found using one or the other drug. Statistics were not only eye opening but terrifying too. It means, out of every 10 students, 6 are into drugs, which again questions, what kind of diseased lifestyle and society we are heading towards.
