Indonesia remains under serious threat from drug traffickers, many of its working-age population trapped in a vicious drug cycle.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, which hit the country on March 2, 2020, drug lords continued to be a serious threat with rampant drug trafficking even amid the health crisis.
Since his first term as head of government, President Joko Widodo has reminded the nation of the serious consequences of drug use on Indonesia.
During the inauguration of a large mosque in Pontianak, West Kalimantan, on January 20, 2015, he warned that at least 50 people were dying of drug addiction every day. The statistics included those who failed to rehabilitate, he said.

According to the National Narcotics Agency (BNN), the deaths have failed to deter drug addicts in the country.
Crystal users of methamphetamine, narcotics, marijuana and other types of addictive drugs come from different communities and from different socio-economic and cultural backgrounds.
Citing the results of a survey conducted by BNN and the Indonesian Institute of Science (LIPI), Vice President Ma’ruf Amin noted that Indonesia has more than 3.4 million drug addicts.
The survey showed that around 180 out of 10,000 Indonesians, aged 15 to 64, were driven to drug addiction, he noted.
Therefore, in commemoration of this year’s International Day against Drug Abuse and Trafficking, Amin called the collective attention of Indonesians to the grave threat of drug-related crimes.
