Bode: It's not normal and it's not fair to ask, "What did you do?"  on the line of drug prevention

The Minister of Interior, Lucian Bode, declared on Thursday that there is also a tendency in Romania to increase the number of people who use drugs, but also of those who become addicted. “It is not normal and it is incorrect for the MIA structures to rhetorically ask the question What did you do? In this field,” said Bode, who listed the actions in which the institutions within the ministry intervened.

“I urged the MIA structures to urgently come up with a plan to prevent and combat drug use and trafficking.

Today, at 10, we convened at the MIA all the structures responsible in this field and following this meeting we will establish measures with deadlines on preventing and combating drug trafficking. We will re-evaluate the data collection activity, we will additionally train the MIA staff, we will establish the calendar of events with a large audience, we will have an increased presence of MIA staff. We will prepare the event organizers and communicate publicly.

It is not normal and it is incorrect for MIA structures to rhetorically ask the question What did you do? In this area, when we had tens of thousands of students involved in drug agency projects, we had hundreds of thousands of volunteers.

On the fight line, in 2021 alone we had over 7,000 criminal cases on drug use and possession, we dismantled 52 criminal groups, we sent over 1600 people to court. 2.8 tons of drugs were confiscated last year.

We are aware that we have not done enough, we are talking about a scourge, there are many occasional consumers who become addicted, state institutions must make a common front against this scourge.

There is also a trend in Romania to increase the number of people who use drugs, and those who become addicted, “said Lucian Bode.

The General Directorate of Gendarmes of the Municipality of Bucharest transmitted that in two days, on the occasion of the SAGA festival that took place on the National Arena, fines totaling 7,000 lei were given and the necessary documents were prepared to start the investigations for 77 facts of a criminal nature regarding the trafficking and consumption of dogwood, as well as for aggravated theft.

Two people have died as a result of an overdose after several young people participating in the SAGA Festival in Bucharest were brought in a very serious condition on Friday night to several hospitals in the Capital, Gândul.ro informed, citing medical sources.
