Internet is being used for drug trafficking
The Internet is a key channel for the underground drug market, and the country is experiencing a rising wave of drug-related crimes, with the Internet serving as a key channel for the underground drug market, an anti- drug official said.
“The Internet has become an increasingly active platform for the organization and operation of drug abuse and trafficking,” Liu Yuejin, director of the ministry’s narcotics control bureau, said in an interview.
Criminals also use the Internet to learn how to source material and make drugs illegally, he said.
To fight increasing drug crimes via the Internet, the police launched a nationwide crackdown last summer. In eight days starting on July 29, police arrested 2,120 suspects and smashed 11 drug production centers.
