Get Involved With World Drug Day!

Under the theme #ShareFactsonDrugs #SaveLives, the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) Special Event will commemorate the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, observed every year on June 26, and launch the UNODC 2021 World Drug Report.
