Students asking questions and sharing experiences We got to know about a new drug called 7days that is in circulation and the process of its incubation and fermentation.

According to Dr Tena Lazarus, the children were free to identify with us and made known some of their challenges they face at home and peer pressure. They shared their knowledge on new drugs inventions and of a particular one they called 7Days which they had tested and narrowly escaped death. They said 7Days is a concussion of different dry gins, human faeces and root liquid extract which has complicated stages of preparation of 7 days buried underground or around dirty hill in a bottled plastic. They said the drugs results to instant madness when taken and its newly invented in the community leading to group youths’ madness.

“Some kids opened up to us on their intake of drugs in the past and asked what they could do to make things right” and they were reassured of the organisation support ad further protection of their vulnerability.
