One hundred and two cases of students involved in drugs were recorded from fifty nine schools in the Central Division this year.
These includes glue sniffing, smoking and other inhalant substances.
National Substance Abuse Advisory Council Chief Executive Manoa Senikarawa raised concern about these cases and highlighted the importance of parental supervision.
“Beware of what they do, supervise them in their free time and supervise the use of internet because our young people have yound minds and they can be easily affected with what they see and what they can access in the internet.”
Senikarawa says there were seventeen cases from fifty eight schools in the Western division while the North and Eastern Division have sixteen and thirteen cases respectively.
