The City of Cape Town will announce its policy position statement on illicit drugs at an event in Bonteheuwel, to mark International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.

City Health Dr Ivan Bromfield says in 1987 the United Nation General Assembly decided that they would observe the 26 June as International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.

“Today is that day and as part of the city event to try tell people how to deal with substance abuse.”

The City of Cape Town will seek to strategically address drug related problems through the development of the City of Cape Town Alcohol and Drug Operational Plan 2007 – 2010, says Dr Bromfield.

“The operational plan will define the role of the City and will provide direction for alcohol and drug related programmes and policies in the city.”

drug abuse is really a great problem for us. it is spoiling the teenagers and young adults. recovering from drug addiction is also very hard. so the best way is to keep away from drugs. we all have to come forward to stop drug abuse. we must work to corner the local drug dealers. we must keep drugs out of our streets.

26th june is the international day against drug abuse and illicit drug trafficking. i've posted an article on that day. I hope you come and share your views on that post.

best wishes
