There is no place for drugs in a happy life

The United Nations General Assembly in 1987 approved  March 1th as the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illegal Drug Trafficking.

The problem of drug addiction is one of the most pressing for both public health service and society as a whole. This is due to the severe medical and social consequences of psychotropic substance abuse where typical personality changes are the hardest.

An interactive platform with a video demonstration was organized for students of Economic and Biotechnological Faculties. The major officers of the criminal investigation department of the Pinsk Border Detachment  A.A. Kosyanenko  and E.I. Kostritsa were invited. They covered the causes of drug addiction and the consequences of drug addiction (medical, mental and social), and also made a review of the drug situation in the country for 2018. They focused on criminal liability for the illegal trafficking of drugs, psychotropic substances, their precursors and analogues (Article №328 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Belarus).
