Recently, the case of drug abuses reported among youngsters has increased dramatically owing to the growing popularity of rave parties. More surprising, taking ecstasy, a rave drug, has become a habit for party-goers as young as 12. The trend is so serious that it sparks the concerns of our society. Actions should be taken immediately to highlight the dangers of taking drugs. However, are the government’s actions adequate? Personally, I don’ t think so. Simply searching and putting warnings on the entry tickets for rave parties are not enough. Further actions and other measures must be taken to prevent the use of drugs among the youth.
Instead of putting warnings on the entry tickets, the government should pose a ban on rave parties. In rave parties, there are many drug couriers. Drugs are flooded in the parties. Teenagers, who are ignorant and immature, are easily misled and transmitted wrong values. They are attracted and depraved to resort to drugs. They then become physically and psychologically dependent on drugs. Nowadays, rave parties even become subcultures and all the craze among the young people. Banning the rave parties can stop young people getting the drugs. Isn’t it the most clear-cut method to prevent the widespread drug abuses? Advocates may argue that rave parties can provide them a valuable mean of entertainment. Nevertheless, indeed there is a great variety of activities, such as, ball games, social services, for them to choose from. Why do the teenagers still desire to take the risk of going to the rave parties where they are easily attracted to drug abuses?
Rave as a Post- Modern Phenomena is continuing to increase is size. Every year more teenagers discover the potential of this way to have fun. They suddenly feel part of something, which they enjoy. However, the rave phenomena primarily depended of taking the drugs. Unfortunately, like any other culture, or cult hippies is self-stupefying. This means that the ignorance of the Ravers maintains as ...
Furthermore, regular inspections by the Custom at the cross-border checkpoints are to be made to prevent the flow of rave drugs from the mainland China to the SAR. Besides, mainland authorities and the SAR police should joint hands to curb cross-border drug trafficking. In fact, most of the drugs used in the rave parties come mainly from the mainland China. There is also a trend of young people going to the mainland China for rave parties. Certainly, the SAR government is not doing enough to prevent the spread of rave parties from Hong Kong to China or even turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to this situation. Although not all the rave parties are bad, there are too many bad sheep. Rave parties certainly do more harm than good.
Government ought to educate the youngsters and provide counseling to students. Students may have the misconceptions that drugs have little effects on us. They may not know that the drugs are addictive and have a lot of side effects. We should highlight the dangers of taking rave drugs, for example, over dosage may lead to malfunctioning of the bodies and even death. Anti-drugs campaigns are to be organized to arouse students’ awareness of taking rave drugs and going to the rave parties. Moreover, counseling should also be provided by teachers or social workers. Students in Hong Kong are under pressure and stresses. When they are depressed and may not look up to the reality, they may not be able to find someone to talk to, they feel lonely and frustrated. They simply find and enjoy a second of excitement and illusions by taking the drugs. It is clear that the long-term solution to prevent the drug abuse among the youngster is to educate them so they are prepared to resist the temptations of drugs.
To wind up, the government, to put it mildly, just does some superficial things on this issue; it is high time she acted swiftly to the problems of growing number of drug abuses among young people. More decisive actions are definitely required to address the problems of drug abuses. Long-terms and practical means are to be taken without delay instead of just taking piecemeal measures. Otherwise, the problem will continue to exert its effects on our community.
