In 2017, the National Narcotics Agency recorded as many as 3.37 million Indonesians between the age of 10 and 59 involved in drug abuse.

That figure increased in 2019 to 3.6 million in which 2.29 million students were associated with drug abuse activities in 2018.

“The millennial generation will replace the current generation in the coming decades. They have to be healthy and productive. They must live 100% to the fullest and happily without drugs,” said Ma’ruf.

The Indonesian Vice-President’s statement references Indonesia’s bonus demography that is spearheaded by the millennial generation.

Ma’ruf has called for preventative measures as part of a demand reduction strategy.

He has also called for stronger law enforcement in the supply reduction strategy led by the National Narcotics Agency.

The proposed initiatives are responses to the high supply and demand of narcotics which Ma’ruf Amin mentioned in his speech.

Narcotics has what Ma’ruf calls a multi-dimensional impact and poses a serious threat. The impact can be seen in various sectors from health to the economy.

The new portal is part of the National Narcotics Agency’s One-Stop Service.
