Today is International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.
Established by the UN General Assembly in 1987, the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking serves as a reminder of the goals agreed to by member states of creating an international society free of drug abuse.
The theme for the 2016 celebration is: “Listen First’’
“Listening first’’ to children is the first step to help them grow healthy and safe,’’ the UN said.
