Lawrence Tau who is also an advocator against drugs and substance abuse says the current drug laws of the country are not harsh enough to deter youths from committing this offense.
He said it is high time for the government and the law and justice sector to amend the existing drug laws and penalties.
“The drug laws are not effective. If you look at them, they are too lenient” said Mr Tau.
Under the current drug laws, offenders serve only 2 years jail time.
“As an advocator against drugs, I see that harsher penalties should be imposed” he further stated.
