SITIAWAN: Drug addicts are now resorting to injecting drugs into their heads for faster effect, said Deputy Home Minister Datuk Zainal Abidin Zin. 

The private parts are another area where addicts inject drugs to enable them to escape undetected by the authorities, he added. 

“These are two new methods of injecting themselves with drugs apart from the conventional way of injecting the arm which the authorities have discovered,” he said in his speech when closing the anti-drug awareness campaign at Felcra Lekir here yesterday. 

Zainal Abidin, who is also National Anti-Drug Agency chairman, said following the discoveries police had been directed to carry out full body checks on all suspected drug addicts.
