The sad and shocking facts revealed by the National Narcotics Agency of Indonesia concerning the number of people who experience addiction drug addicts alias addicts in the country that reached the amount of 6 million. More alarming, that figure is not included in the early users who are still trial and error.
The amount of research revealed the Indonesian National Narcotics Agency in collaboration with the Center for Health Research, University of Indonesia (UI) in Depok. The age range of users is increasingly widespread, said Deputy Prevention of the National Narcotics Agency of Indonesia Irjen Ali Djohardi Wirogioto.
“As the results of research between the National Narcotics Agency of Indonesia with the Center for Health Research UI has almost touched the number 6 million, it entered in the data level of narcotics dependence,” said Ali, as quoted by the page okezone.com, Thursday (20/7/2017).
Increased demand has sparked an increasingly vigorous supply of illegal goods to the homeland. Several cases of large-scale disclosure prove that Indonesia is facing a drug emergency problem.
According to Ali, Indonesia is the largest country of narcotics users in Asia today, and that fact should not be taken lightly.
Of the 65 types of narcotics that exist, users and dealers in the country has been known to use all types. Whereas in other countries most only 5-6 types that can enter and circulate.
The work of the authorities must be even harder in preventing the entry and distribution of such illicit goods in the country, he added.
