Monrovia – Despite efforts by the Liberia Drugs Enforcement Agency (LDEA) in combatting drug addiction in Liberia, the number continues to rise, especially among the youth population. Another group of young people, who, too, are now getting involved in taking in illegal drugs are high school students. According to SAC president Daniel Dennis, an ongoing survey by his organization is proving that the abuse of drugs by young people, especially high school students is on the increase in Liberia. Dennis said students can be seen in various ghettos and entertainment places during school hours, especially on Fridays. SAC is a local non-governmental organization working with several public schools to create awareness against corruption in high schools and the communities.
