The agency’s actions are finding more praise with actor and Bharatiya Janata Party Member of Parliament Ravi Kishan speaking about it in the Parliament.

I'm feeling good after the #NarcoticsControlBureau in #Mumbai is tightening its grip on those selling drugs and its users. Can Narcotics Bureau crack down on singers or artists who glorify drugs? It is their biggest role in destroying generations. #DrugsMafia #SaveCulture pic.twitter.com/182PMIqKeu— Jassi (@JJassiOfficial) September 13, 2020
Some of the other celebrities to strongly hit out at the drugs culture were Kangana Ranaut and Raveena Tandon. The former has been at the forefront of the voice against the menace, claiming ‘99 per cent of Bollywood stars consume drugs’, and even seeking a blood test for stars before they are signed on for any project.
