Tobacco is consumed in many forms in India. Apart from beedi-cigarettes, hookahs, it is also used as gutkha, khaini. According to the Global Tobacco Survey, about 35 percent of adults in India are consuming tobacco in some form and their number is increasing continuously. According to the Bureau of Crime Records, 73.5 percent of the incidents of murder, robbery, robbery, rajani etc. are the drug addicts. In heinous crimes like rape, this rate has reached 87 percent. Psychologists, who have a keen eye on the activities of the world of crime, point out that the addiction to the stimulus, mental impulse and mental stress needed to commit a crime is addictive. In these conditions, we will have to participate in the global campaign to curb tobacco consumption and also make efforts at the local level like Jharkhand. Only then will we be able to build a tobacco-free society and country.
