There is a new trend of increasing use of synthetic drugs known as ICE (methamphetamine crystals) among girls, National Dangerous Drugs Control Board (NDDCB) said.

NDDCB Assistant Counsellor Lakmee Nilanka said many girls and young women are lured into using drug through beauty parlors.

She revealed these while participating in an awareness program organized by Kuliyapitiya Excise Office to prevent schoolchildren from  getting addicted to drugs.

Accordingly, she pointed out that many of the schoolgirls and young women who are currently being treated are addicted to ICE which they get access to buy and use from beauty salons.

She also said, the statistics show that ICE is being widely used in the Kurunegala district. (DSB)
