According to the Government Spokesperson, the Prime Minister and his administration are determined to eliminate the narcotics issue.

Government spokesperson and Public Relations Department chief Lt-General Sansern Kaewkamnerd said today that Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha has stated that the government has made eradicating the narcotics problem a national issue, showing the administration’s commitment to terminating the issue.

He announced that the Prime Minister has advised that the public health sector will now focus on caring for substance abusers by taking human rights into account and giving them guidance in living peacefully in society.

General Prayut talked about the civil-state plan to establish anti-narcotics communities, while combining efforts to deal with drug traffickers, producers and networks. Lt-General Sansern disclosed that the Prime Minister mentioned the amendment of related laws, and consolidating them into a single law that can be enforced effectively.

He said that the government is implementing the teachings of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej in approaching the issues concerning drugs and social inequality. The spokesperson also indicated that various foreign governments in countries such as Myanmar, Afghanistan and Indonesia have put these teachings into action, after observing one of His Majesty the late King’s famous projects, the Doi Tung Development Project.

Lt. General Sansern urged all sections of society to contribute to the fight against narcotics by abstaining from drugs in any form, and informing officials about the issue whenever they come across evidence of the problem.
