Concern over the increase of drugs at major events

The National Council on Substance Abuse (NCSA) is concerned about the increased usage of alcohol and illicit drugs during major events.

Deputy Manager, Troy Wickham said there is evidence of this increase and the council is putting measures in place to address the issue ahead of the Men’s T20 Cricket World Cup.

He was speaking on the sidelines of the four-day sub-regional technical expert meeting, which is being hosted by the NCSA.

Mr. Wickham said the NCSA will launch a campaign to encourage responsible drinking and mitigate the use of illicit drugs ahead of the World Cup.
