Bible Reading: 1 Cor. 6:19-20

Memory Verse:  Therefore my people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge; Their honorable men are famished, And their multitude dried up with thirst. Isaiah 5:13(NKJV)

In Nigeria, the problem of drugs began to assume very worrisome dimensions at the end of the Second World War following the return of some Nigerian soldiers from mainly Burma, India, where they had fought.

One of the negative consequences of the war was the return of the soldiers with some seeds of cannabis sativa, also known as Indian Hemp, which they in turn experimented. It was discovered that the illicit plant could do well in some parts of the country. With time, the cultivation of cannabis sativa began to grow and so was the trafficking and abuse of the cannabis plant.

Drug barons soon discovered that the geographical location of Nigeria, its thick population, bustling commerce, and vibrant air transportation hold so much attraction for a thriving drug business.

Codeine containing cough syrup mixed with soft drinks is gradually taking over alcohol in youth parties. Some of the most commonly abused drugs are alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, amphetamines, barbiturates; cocaine, etc.

Food for thought: Why should you be a slave to a product that cannot see, talk or move? You are bigger than that.

Quote: Flee from all appearances of evil.

Prophetic Word: Chain breaker, Jesus Christ shall loose you from all bad addictions, in Jesus name.
