Members of public can visit revamped Hong Kong Jockey Club Drug InfoCentre free of charge (with photo)
     The Hong Kong Jockey Club Drug InfoCentre (HKJC DIC) has reopened for members of the public to visit free of charge from today (December 5).
     The HKJC DIC is located at the roof floor of the Low Block of the Queensway Government Offices and is accessible from MTR Admiralty Station or bus and minibus stops on Queensway. The HKJC DIC was closed for a large-scale renovation from February 2021 and a reopening ceremony was held on November 28, 2022, after the completion of its renovation.
     Operated by the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, the revamped HKJC DIC is equipped with various multimedia facilities and devices, including an interactive game that detects movements and an imaging device that shows the harmful effects caused by drug abuse. To publicise that the legislative amendment relating to the control of cannabidiol (CBD) will commence on February 1, 2023, a resource corner is set up during the initial period of the reopening to provide information about the harmful effects of CBD and the relevant control of the substance. In addition to exhibitions, visitors can participate in guided tours and anti-drug events organised at the HKJC DIC.
     Visitors are welcome to visit the HKJC DIC during its opening hours, which are from 10am to 6pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, from Thursdays to Sundays, and public holidays (including the Christmas holidays during December 25 and 27, 2022, and the New Year's holidays during January 1 and 2, 2023). The HKJC DIC is closed on Wednesdays (except public holidays), and the first and second days of Lunar New Year. Please visit the website of the HKJC DIC (www.druginfocentre.hk/en/index.html) for the days of opening and arrangements, as well as latest information about the centre and its activities. Enquiries could be made through email at hkjcdic@sb.gov.hk or by calling 2867 2935 during opening hours.
