To mark the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking (on June 26), officials of Nanchang Narcotics Control Commission and Jiangxi and Nanchang women's federations on June 25 conducted, in Nanchang (capital of East China's Jiangxi Province), an activity to raise residents' awareness about the importance of not getting involved in drug use and trafficking.
Organizers called on residents to stay away from drugs, lead healthy lives and build peaceful families. Organizers also held interactive activities to share relevant information, and they distributed drug- and AIDSrelated information pamphlets. The activity was well received by residents, who learned how to prevent drug abuse and trafficking, and how to prevent AIDS. Officials of Nanchang Women and Children's Activity Center told media the center would organize more activities, including conducting drug-related courses, providing legal assistance to residents and arranging for residents to visit Jiangxi's Drug Prohibition Base, to help residents better understand how to prevent drug abuse and drug trafficking.
