    PM orders crackdown on drug rings

    BANGKOK (NNT) - The Prime Minister has ordered a crackdown on illegal drug operations, hoping to safeguard young people from illicit substances.


    Speaking at an awarding ceremony for people and organizations with excellent contributions to anti-drug efforts, Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha elaborated on the country’s anti-narcotics operations that aim to find a balance between suppression, prevention, and rehabilitation.


    He said awareness-raising campaigns are needed to tell young people about the consequences of drugs, along with campaigns to promote drug-free schools and communities. He stressed the need for occupational training for addicts in rehabilitation, which will enable them to have a new life.


    The number of arrests in Thailand related to drug cases between 2018 and 2022 saw a decline, thanks to stringent measures and cooperation with neighboring countries, especially Laos and Myanmar.


    The Prime Minister also urged local officials to continue cracking down on those involved in drug rings, including their financial supporters. From 1 October 2021 to 29 June 2022, Thai authorities seized a total of 9.21 billion baht in assets from drug dealers.

    I thought it wasn't illicit any more. Or a Narcotic.
