Drug awareness campaign

A two-year campaign to teach young people about the dangers of drug abuse was launched yesterday. Secretary for Justice Wong Yan-lung said the campaign aimed to correct common misunderstandings about psychotropic substances. The government's Beat Drugs Fund will also sponsor 59 projects this year and has earmarked a record HK$33 million to fund anti-drugs measures. Mr Wong said the government was looking to introduce voluntary drug testing at schools this year.
