The worst part about the availability of this drug is the low cost at which it can be easily purchased. It is affordable to all sections of society, including children. This is a major cause of concern for the government because they want the conjunction to get stretched once that particular aspect. It is a serious cause of concern and has to be tackled as soon as possible. 

In such a situation, the government should take practical measures and try to exercise a maximum amount of vigilance mechanism so that these instances of trafficking can be reduced for the safety of the people because it is not indivisible for the long one.
