‘Loop­holes ex­on­er­ate crim­i­nals’:

Arab Times - - LO­CAL -

Head of the Psy­chol­ogy De­part­ment at Kuwait Uni­ver­sity Dr Oweid Al-Me­shaan said the loop­holes in laws ex­on­er­ate drug traders, hence, the need for thor­ough re­view of leg­is­la­tion to tighten con­trol and com­bat drugs, re­ports Al-Sha­hed daily.

Speak­ing on a pro­gram on Al-Sha­hed TV, Al-Me­shaan ex­plained a drug ad­dict is a sick per­son who needs to be treated while, high­light­ing the im­por­tant role played by fam­ily and friends, in ad­di­tion to the aware­ness role that should be played by min­istries in or­der to reach out to all seg­ments of so­ci­ety.

He said the ‘Gheras’ aware­ness pro­ject achieved re­sound­ing suc­cess in terms of reach­ing out to all seg­ments of so­ci­ety in the fight against drugs; but un­for­tu­nately, it was sus­pended due to lack of gov­ern­ment sup­port. He re­vealed the pro­ject was the brain­child of former min­is­ter of in­te­rior Sheikh Mo­ham­mad Al-Khalid.
