  • Paranoia and Hallucinations:

One thing about the consumption and abuse of illicit drugs is what it turns the users into. It turns a once looking handsome and sane young man into a rogue-looking, dirty and tattered. They walk about, talking to their shadows and withdrawn.

  • Crimes:

An illicit drug user is like Oliver Twist. He will always want some more. If he doesn’t have the money to pay for the drug, he will do anything to get hold of the drug, even if it means stealing.  It is reported that in Sierra Leone, young men often look for anything they can sell to earn money to buy Kush.

In the case of the young woman, they can use any means like the practice of witchcraft to get money for this Kush drug. This drug also often pushes young people to commit crimes.
