The meeting was held at 3pm yesterday (Mar 29) at the Phuket Provincial Hall with police, soldiers and other leading officials also in attendance.

The Phuket PR Office reported that V/Gov Snith said, “Kratom has been found to still be very prevalent in Phuket, and the use of it is continuing to spread. More addicts are being treated.

“We are paying high attention to control and ridding drug use amongst youths. So places of education have to pay attention in taking care of students,” the report quoted V/Gov Snith as saying.

“We want to expand the drug prevention and suppression project to villages in Phuket. More activities should be arranged in order to encourage people in communities to stay away from drugs,” the report continued.

V/Gov Snith repeated that officials should strictly search for drugs on the island especially at the Phuket Checkpoint as well as other checkpoints set up during this year’s Songkran Festival.

Are Phuket schools and universities paying attention by having information lessons about the use of drugs?
The Phuket drugs fight should start with prevention-education.

Guide scholars and students were they can report 'drugs happening'.
