THE National Anti-Drug Agency (Nada) will set up an educational information centre in every school to warn students of the dangers of drugs.

Ledang district Nada officer Roslan Husin felt the centre would be able to raise awareness of the dangers of drug abuse to students.

He said Nada, which was mandated to assist schools in the nationwide project, would give an allocation to schools to set up the information centre, which would also provide motivational talks to get students to stay away from drugs.


"We will visit schools to give talks and organise motivation programmes to enable students to know more about drug abuse and may also conduct urine tests on students, if necessary.

"Youths who are influenced by friends or lured into drug abuse due to peer pressure must be made aware that this is the path to ruin," Roslan said in his speech at the launch of the Mukim Serom/Kundang district-level "Love Yourself, Love Your Family" programme at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tengku Mahmud Iskandar in Sungai Mati, Ledang recently.

It was organised by the Ledang district National Association for the Prevention of Drug Abuse (Pemadam).
