Unkosikazi Sithole uthi lemithi okumele ithengwe ngokulotshelwa ingcwadi ngodokotela ama Prescribed medicines, ngokunye osekusetshenziswa ngendlela engayisiyo, ngabasakhulayo laba.

Lanxa sebelatshiwe, uNkosikazi Sithole uthi babuyela kokuphela esibhedlela njengoba bezophinde bakuthathe njalo okudakayo lokhu, lapho sebelatshiwe, baqonqoselwa ukuba behlukane lakho. Okusuka kube ngumthwalo omkhulu kuhulumende, oqhubeka esiba lendleko yokubelapha, ikanti leyo mali kungebikade izosetshenziswa kokunye.

Abezempilakahle bathi, liqhubeka liqansa inani labasakhulayo, ikakhulu abesilisa, abathatha okudakayo ngezizatho ezehlukeneyo, okubalisa ukuswela okokwenza lalapho besanelisa.

Abohlangothi olubona ngezokuthathwa kokudakayo lokudalwa kwamacala enhlanganisweni yomanyano wamazwe omhlaba, i-United Nations Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, bebika ukuba phose amakhulu amabili ezigidi zabantu umhlaba wonke, besebenzisa okudakayo ngokungekho emthethweni, okubalisa imbanje, cocaine, mandrax lokunye okutshiyeneyo.
