A first-year student can easily track where drugs are sold, so why can’t the police: Law Student asks police officer

In today’s era, the younger generation is actively utilizing social media as a platform to voice their questions and concerns. A video featuring a college student challenging the police about the prevalent availability of drugs has gained widespread attention on social media. The student posed a thought-provoking question, asking, ‘If students can identify drug dealers, why can’t the police?’ This video is rapidly circulating across various social media platforms.

This video was captured during the de-addiction campaign organized by the cops in Sonipat, Haryana. In the video, the student is seen asking a police officer on the stage why drugs are “so easily” available to students and what the police are doing about it. Further in the video he says, Sir, we have seen such a big program of de-addiction campaign, but the university is the biggest center of drug addiction. Today students from 4 different universities have gathered here. It is very easy to get ‘Ganja’ or any such substance. “You can get ganja everywhere you go, just like candy or a lollipop.”

“Why can’t the police detect or track drug dealers if first- or second-year students can do the same? Is the police lagging behind?” He asked the police officer further. Since I’m an undergraduate student here, I know that the police station is nearby, and ‘Ganja’ is available right outside. Isn’t this a failure on the police’s part?” the student said. The clip then ends suddenly without showing the identity or reaction of the police officer to whom the question was asked.

Some users who posted the video claimed that the event was organized at Dr. BR Ambedkar National Law University in Sonipat. The clip quickly went viral and users shared a variety of reactions. Users commented praising the brave student for raising an important issue.

One user writes, ‘Bro has all the qualities of a politician.’

Another user writes, ‘Isn’t this true for all colleges? Love the fact that this student speaks truth to power, and does not swallow all the BS the speaker is dishing out!’
