PUTRAJAYA: The role of parents and family institutions remains the most important in the fight against the drug menace. 

Pemadam vice-president Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye said it would help educate and instil awareness among parents on how to deal with the drug problem and guide their children along the right path. 

“As the largest non-governmental group in the country involved in the fight against drugs, we declare our full support to the Government in making this year the 'Year of Total War Against Drugs.’ 

“Pemadam regards the latest decision by the National Drugs Council to take all-out action to free us from the drug menace by 2015 as an expression of a strong political will to eradicate the No. 1 enemy in the country,” he said in a statement here on Wednesday. 

Lee said it is now necessary to ensure that the political will is translated into action. 

“The mobilisation of all available resources in the community involving NGOs, voluntary and religious organisations to join forces with the Government is also important.”
