The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) took proactive steps on Tuesday by organizing an informative symposium. The primary objective was to raise awareness about the dire consequences associated with illegal drug usage and trafficking, with a particular focus on the younger generation.
Dato Paduka Mohd Zalani bin Haji Ismail, the Director of NCB, emphasized the urgency of this initiative. Recent statistics have revealed a concerning trend where a significant portion of individuals involved in drug-related activities falls within the age bracket of 19 to 39 years old. This symposium serves as a critical platform to address this pressing issue and equip youths with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions regarding their involvement with drugs.
