The lockdown blues of Hyderabad is also affecting substance abuse that is not legal but is very popular among young adults and adults till the age of 40. The drug movement in the city has taken a break because of lockdowns and restrictions and with fewer people everywhere, which makes their activities in nooks and corners quite visible. 


The law enforcement and excise duty officials in the city limits are breathing easy as these smugglers are getting grilled near state borders, and they are frisked if the person is already under the radar or his body language is unusual. With the state police at borders maintaining high vigilance, these smugglers and their customers are having a hard time.  The biggest bust made in the last few weeks was at Kakinada, where a gang of men were inbound to Hyderabad were busted with a good 204 kg of marijuana. 


The ganja and other contraband arrived from different parts of the country and reached the Dhoolpet area, notoriously running this trade for 20 years. This trade is run by families and as well as individuals who own other businesses around that area. The Law Enforcement hasn't been able to get the smugglers in these areas under their control. Still, they have been trying to catch young boys and girls involved in reselling among their friends and acquaintances and into the consumption of these substances and counsel them.
