Besides penal and criminal laws, a value based guidance system is imperative to handle such situations. In this context proper religious education, meditation has to be given a chance. It is not only role of parents, teachers, social activists, but equally that of religious preachers which will provide a meaningful guidance and hope to such misguided human soul in solving the problem of drug abuse among youth which are future of the society.
