“My call is also for the community and police to assist this program to fight drugs in the province further. It can be appropriate for community members to share drug-related information with the producers of this program so that we can rid our province of this scourge that is destroying the youth in big numbers. In the same vein, the local police should also work with this program’s producers, too,” she said.
