There are certain loopholes in combating drug menace in Manipur, the 3.5 Collective pointed out during a consultative meeting in Imphal and suggested collective efforts of CSOs and the state government to achieve drug-free Manipur.

In view of the new development and emerging challenges on achieving a drug free Manipur by 2030, the 3.5 Collective organised a Multi-stakeholders Consultation of Drug Menace in Manipur on Monday in Imphal East.

"It can be clearly seen that there are certain loopholes in combating the drug menace in the state... the main objective of the consultation is to pinpoint the loopholes and rectify the strategy of tackling the issue of drug menace," co-convenor, 3.5 Collective, Geetchandra Mangang told reporters.

Mangang said Manipur has been vastly affected by illicit drugs and it is the immediate need of the hour to tackle the issue collectively by joining hands among the CSOs and the state government.
