Since 2020, drug usage and trafficking have grown by a factor of ten, according to the NCB.

To date, the NCB has already confiscated 4.82 tonnes of ganja, 5.25 kg of opium, 0.710 kg of Morphine, and 48.8 kg of charas.

Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) zonal director (Bihar and Jharkhand) Kumar Manish said on Friday that drug abuse and trafficking have increased manyfold since 2020, owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, as evidenced by the activities of various drug enforcement agencies, particularly the NCB Patna zonal unit.

Manish said the bureau is working on a "proactive" strategy to filter out drug misuse and unlawful trafficking from Bihar and Jharkhand, as part of a united front against the drug problem.

“We will continue to speed up our operations against drug traffickers and drug cartels to save people, especially youth from the drug menace,” Manish said.

Manish said the bureau is engaged in a "proactive" strategy to filter out drug misuse and unlawful trafficking from Bihar and Jharkhand, as part of a united front against the drug problem.

Manish stated that the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking is marked every year on June 26 to raise awareness about issues that illicit drugs cause in society and to enhance worldwide action and collaboration to realise the goal of a drug-free civilization. 

Drug addiction and mental illness are inextricably linked. People who are addicted to this, are at risk not only for their physical health but also their mental health, he added.
