2.3. The menace of drug trafficking.-
The trafficking in illegal drugs means to amass illegal wealth in a short time, which is an act, of perfidy which no society can condone. Traffickers in illicit drugs have been described as "merchants of death and destruction". A murderer may kill one or two persons, but a drug trafficker destroys the lives of thousands of boys and girls at the same time, to whom he supplies the drugs, by pushing them to a stage from where there is no return and thereby not only ruining them and their families but also the nation.
