The 45-year-old star took to Twitter and urged that the dealers and suppliers must be punished. She tweeted, "It was high time for clean up to happen. Very welcome! Will help our young/future generations. Start from here, surely, proceed to all sectors. Uproot it from its core. Punish the Guilty, users, the dealers/suppliers.
