Crime Patrol: Pharmaceuticals on the Rise as a Dominant Drug Market in India (Episode 105 on 27th April 2012)

The Inside Story

Pharmaceuticals on the Rise as a Dominant Drug Market in India

Pharmaceutical drug abuse is on the rise in third-world and threshold countries, with opium derivatives being the most widely used. The medicine, meant for a totally different clientele, is being reproduced in underground labs or sold illegally by agents of pharmacy companies. The offered product is meant to exploit the user's addiction and make money. In India, this kind of drug abuse has become a disturbing phenomenon, leading to catastrophic consequences.

Homeless people of every age and other clients, including day laborers and municipal employees, are using these drugs to tranquilize their daily struggles. The choice of drugs available is vast and offers everything for every circumstance of life. The medicine, not supposed to be given to anyone without a prescription from a doctor, is sold for a price even the poor can afford. An ampule Buprenorphine, an ampule Diazepam, an ampule Avil, and two disposable syringes are sold for 50 Rupees.

The rise in pharmaceutical drug abuse highlights the need for stricter regulations and enforcement to prevent the illegal sale of medicines. The government must take steps to create awareness and educate people, especially the youth, about the dangers of drug abuse. It is also necessary to provide access to affordable healthcare and rehabilitation facilities for those struggling with addiction. The incident is a wake-up call for all of us to work towards creating a society where drug abuse is not the norm, and people can live healthy, fulfilling lives.
