Parents urged to be vigilant in observing their children amid increased reports of drug use among young people
With increasing drug use among young persons in Jamaica, parents are being encouraged to be more vigilant in observing the activities of their children.
Speaking to students at a recent drug awareness seminar in St. Elizabeth, Corporal Nicola Allen Gayle noted that the use of drugs such as molly, marijuana and alcohol have been increasing among school children.
The corporal urged parents to inspect their children, noting that some signs of drug use, for example smoking, can be physically identified.
Corporal Allen Gayle also urged parents to be careful with the music that they allow their children to listen.
She noted that some music promote negative drug use or other behaviours.
