The Acting Commissioner of Police believes that they need to show the harsh realities of what hard drugs can cause to the human body.

“Because with drugs it doesn’t take you to any, it just takes you six feet under and if you want to know the consequences of it just visit St. Giles and you see the amount of youth that are affected because of drugs and it’s out there.”

Fong Chew says this is another avenue they need to take, highlighting the importance of education and awareness in preventing drug abuse.

He also outlines a multifaceted approach to the issue, focusing not only on local but also on the ever-growing number of tourists visiting Fiji.
