Drug Control Policy in Korea

Due to their accessible price and increased availability in Korea, drugs have spread not only to the limited user, but also to all levels of Korean society. The number of drug addicts is estimated to be 200,000 to 300,000. It is imperative that prosecutors, police, customs officials and other law enforcement agents make concerted efforts to intensify control activities and expand public information, education, enlightenment, treatment and re-education. They must also actively participate in international drug-related forums and exchange information with other nations in order to strengthen their efforts to stamp out drugrelated crimes.
