ACAN Chairman welcomes "The Chief Executive's 2021 Policy Address"

The following is issued on behalf of the Chairman of Action Committee Against Narcotics (ACAN):
     The ACAN Chairman, Dr Donald Li, welcomed the initiatives on enhancing anti-drug education and law-abiding awareness of young people announced in "The Chief Executive's 2021 Policy Address" delivered today (October 6) by the Chief Executive.
     Dr Li said, "I welcome the inclusion in the Policy Address the new initiatives to impart correct information on the harm caused by drugs to members of the public and enhance the law-abiding awareness of young people. In recent years, the community has been flooded with false information on drugs, particularly cannabis, and the number of young people abusing drugs and involved in drug offences has continued to rise. There is a need to strengthen relevant anti-drug education. I fully endorse the relevant policy direction. The Action Committee Against Narcotics will continue to render full support to the Government in facilitating the community, particularly young people, to understand the harm caused by drugs correctly."
