Health officers took urine samples last night from suspected motorists at three checkpoints manned by Territory Defense Volunteers at Baan Bang Jo intersection, Baan Pakrongcheep, and in front of National Housing Project Moo 1.

No drugs were confiscated at the checkpoints. However, most of those who tested positive in the ‘purple pee’ tests admitted to drug use and agreed to attend the week-long camp at the Srisoonthorn Health Office from today (June 30) to July 8.

Srisoonthorn Chief Health Officer Chaowalit Chumputthipong said the camp is aimed at changing the addicts’ behavior and turning them into good people.
