Glue sniffers warned

MINISTER for Youth Commander Viliame Naupoto is pleading with glue sniffers to think of their future amid a worrying new trend of them chewing and even eating glue with bread.

The new trend was confirmed by police and the National Substance Abuse Authority Council on Thursday.

"My advice to young people is to look ahead, the difference between young people and the older generation is that the young have their lives ahead of them and they should not spoil it by making bad choices like sniffing glue," Cdr Naupoto said.

He appealed to those sniffing glue that it "is not worth it and to stay away from it and enjoy your future as a healthy person."

He explained that the health of youths was an important feature discussed at the National Youth and Sports Conference.

"One of the main thematic areas that we have discussed in this conference is mental illness but the importance of people to make the right choices, on what healthy living is and what healthy living as a foundation means to them.

"Healthy life means your foundation is well set for physically, mentally, you've become a better person there is an opportunity for you to do better in school and other areas of your lives."
