The implementation of drug policy in Jammu and Kashmir is need of the hour. The state government has so far shown reluctance in implementation of a proper and effective drug policy. I support views of Dr Geer Muhammad Ishaq on the issue. Without a drug policy the effective and proper treatment of patients is not possible. Patients have to pay hefty amounts for branded drugs which are either sub-standard or spurious. In absence of a drug policy, any person can get a license and sell drugs which can aggravate illness of patients. I hope that the civil society will make the government implement a proper drug policy which is in the interest of the entire state.
