Vizag airport back in operation

As the police check and raids on smuggling and distribution of prohibited drugs like Brown Sugar, Cocaine, Heroin has increased in recent times, the youth in Visakhapatnam(Vizag) port city in Southern Indian State of Andhra Pradesh, are now getting themselves addicted to medicinal drugs like Codeine phosphate, Pentazol (injection), Alprazolam, Nitrazepam, which in fact have to be sold by the pharmacists on the prescription of Doctors only. But, in the medical stores these are being sold to the youth for higher prices without physician’s prescription, stealthily. Youth in this port city are deriving a kind of anesthetic feeling by using these medicines in higher quantities. The Inspectors of Drug Control Administration in recent times are not keeping watch on the Pharmacists and medical shops that led to indiscriminate sale of these drugs to Youth without prescriptions. The Vizag city since long time has been facing the drugs trafficking problems due to existence of harbor and coming of commercial ships every week. The public are opining that unless there is coordination between the regular police and Officials of Drugs Control Administration to keep a common consolidated check on Pharmacists, this problem can not be solved.
