YEREVAN. – Marking the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, an event with the theme “I Want to Live” was held Tuesday at Charles Aznavour Square of Armenia’s capital, Yerevan.
“As compared with other countries, the number of drug users in Armenia is not that much, but the number of drug addicts is growing here, too, and such events aim to inform the public about the devastating affects of drugs,” Youth Foundation of Armenia Chairman Karen Avagyan noted.
Also, he considered it troublesome that forty percent of Armenia’s drug addicts are until the age of 35.
The event was accompanied with a concert, during which the country’s renowned rock band “Dorians” campaigned against drugs.
And the band’s lead singer Gor Sujyan said there is no better drug for him than music.
