ONE of the reasons drug abuse is increasing is because the laws regulating the practice are not stringent. Many of these drugs, for instance mairungi are not illegal. This means that even if somebody is found abusing them, they cannot be charged.

Community leaders can make by-laws to make the fight against drug abuse easier.

By-laws are regulations made by leaders to supplement existing laws. They can be made at districts and LC3 level.

How to do it:
  • Call a council meeting and explain the dangers of drug abuse.
    lPoint out the increasing crime cases due to drug abuse.

  • Ask the council to enact the by-laws. The by-law can provide for imprisonment for five years or forced community service for those found guilty. lSend a copy of the minutes of the meeting to security officers and to the district local government.
