Drug emergency

Fears that Indonesia is in the grip of a national ‘drugs emergency’ that is decimating the country’s youth were confirmed Monday after the National Narcotics Agency said it had busted an online operation selling marijuana brownies and arrested three people, one of whom attempted to justify the crime – for which they could receive the death penalty – by claiming he was selling them to help people like himself who were living with HIV and Hepatitis C and used marijuana for pain relief.
