Nine girl-students studying at Grade 10 (Formerly known as 9th Standard) from State High School No.( 2 ), Bahan Township, Yangon were dismissed from school as teachers found many drugs in their possession.
These girls, age between 13 to 16 are considered minor and still under full guardianship of parents so be imagined of how widely spreading the drugs abuse cases among the older age students and teenagers.
Spreading of drugs abuse cases were obvious that even normal people and parents aware of it. It was fully ignored by authority because of their family members were involved and benefitted from that business until recently the grandson of Senior General Than Shwe was found as drug addict. Now the authority starts taking action but may be too late.
(For your confirmation, Headmistress of above said school can call on ++951 554101.)
