The Drug Prevention Unit within the Ministry of Health and Social Services, in conjunction with the Youth Development Division and the 4-H Club, held a Drug Prevention March and Rally in the capital to raise the awareness about the ills of drug use.

Students from various schools marched through the streets of Roseau with placards warning against the use of illicit drugs.

Acting Director of the Drug Abuse Prevention Union Martha Jarvis says this formed part of the activities for Drug Awareness Month and the Unit targeted the youth for the activity.
