The reasons are basically loneness, peer pressure, family relation and biological factor responsible. In present we will surprised to see women rehab centre that show how much women involved in drug abuse. The women used as carrier for drug transportation, female selling them self for the sake of drugs. It’s time to think for drug menace in female.
