The iTaukei Lands and Fisheries Commission chairman, Ratu Isireli Vananalagi Vesikula is calling on members of the Bua Provincial Council to create awareness among their youths on the effects of marijuana.

The chairman was speaking during the closing of the two-day Bua Provincial Council meeting at Naulumatua House in Nabouwalu, Bua, on Thursday.

“I am asking the council members please create awareness and talk to children, youths and members of the community about the bad effects of marijuana,” Ratu Isireli said.

“There have been a lot of cases of the cultivation, using and selling of marijuana recently. The iTaukei people are mostly blamed for the cultivation, using and selling of it which is not good.

“We should talk, find solutions and act on combating this issue for the sake of our future generations to be prosperous in life.”

He had also highlighted that they must ensure that they protect women and children.

“There has been a lot of abuse of women and child abuse cases from the northern division. We need to look after the women and children ensure they are protected especially at home, in the village, district and province,” Ratu Isireli said.

“Women are considered the most precious gift in a family in the iTaukei culture which is not new but now they have been badly treated. I am urging the council please create awareness amongst your people on upholding the protection of children and women in your province.”
