While Sierra Leonean authorities are putting all efforts in place to stop its youth from boiling and drinking baby diaper (Pampas) water, the Ghanaian officials are lamenting the surge in the smoking of dried faeces (poo-poo) among some young people who also soak sanitary pads to drink for vitality.

Narcotics Control Board officials in Ghana say the development is worrying and difficult to also control.

A regional commander of the Narcotics Control Board, Ishak Bakuri told the media that those smoking the dried faeces mix it “with Marijuana. And there are others who smoke only the dried” faeces.

Bukari added that “there is even another worrying development which is the use of the pad which our sisters use when they are menstruating. They will boil the pad, sieve it and drink it.”

Local media outlet, Joy FM reported that officials are unable to fight the activity due to lack of a legal regime.

Ghana has a history of young people smoking various forms of substances to gain sustained vitality.

In recent years there were concerns over the abuse of drugs like Tramadol, a pain-killer drug.

Many of those reportedly abusing the drug include young people who take it in excess of approved clinical doses for various activities including prolong sex.

Health officials in Ghana have warned of devastating effects such as heart diseases among others if the trend continues.

Ghana’s health ministry has declared the issue a national concern and hoping the current steps taken could help address the issue.
