This paper talks about the harsh use of substances and drugs by the public, which causes a nuisance, and the rate of crime is also going to increase day by day. The paper also talks about the Legal effect and Judicial activism between sections 49 and 50 of the NDPS Act. The main question it deals with is that the laws are not so rigid and not effectively working like the NDPS Act. The paper also speaks that if the effective amendments made to the laws dealing with the drugs and substance, their abuses will go down, and so will the crime rate.
As a result, to provide comprehensive legislation on narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, which, among other things, should consolidate and amend the then existing laws relating to narcotic drugs, make provisions for exercising effective control over psychoactive materials. It also covers the use of forensic science in many ways to solve crimes related to drugs and psychotropic substances.
