Japanese statement on drug demand reduction

Japan takes a zero tolerance approach to drugs. The policy is to severely punish drug abuse, including first time use. Japan can be drug free.

The government promotes various prevention programmes nationwide which reach people in schools and at home. They work in close collaboration with international organisations. Prevention and public awareness of drug abuse is the foremost priority, followed by treatment for drug dependence. Harm reduction is not an appropriate measure to take against drug addiction.
