Kadavu Youths Fight For Drug Free Zone

When you talk about marijuana, Kadavu naturally comes to mind, which is why we want it to be declared a drug free zone, says a Kadavu youth president.
Tevita Uluikadavu, the president of Ravitaki Youth Club said they did not want to be associated with the drug cultivation in Kadavu.
Chief guest at the Eastern Division Consultation Workshop Permanent Secretary for Youth and Sports JosefaSania said there was a process to follow to get things organised for the youths of Ravitaki .
“We need to work with the Police and the National Substance Abuse Advisory Council (NSAAC) in how we can assist the youths of Ravitaki to be declared a drug free zone ,”he said.
Mr Uluikadavu said the youth club had decided to remove all youth members of the club who were associated with marijuana farming and consumption.
“School dropouts mainly boys on the island know that planting marijuana is ‘fast cash ‘ therefore the Government has started a project this year to plant $15,000 worth of dalo a month, he said.
He confirmed a total of 40 boys make up the Ravitaki Youth Club who are expecting dalo harvesting by March next year.
The workshop will continue today at Ro Lalabalavu House in Suva.
