Minister of Public Security Sarath Weerasekara says a three-prone programme is underway to end the drug menace from the country.

Speaking during a media briefing in Colombo today, Minister Weerasekara said they are hoping to end the influx of the drugs into the country,  reduce the demand for narcotics by educating the students and through the appointment of drug prevention committees with the support of school authorities while also by rehabilitating drug addicts instead of holding them in prison cells.
