The world is experiencing a rise in the use of drugs and psychotropic substances triggering an increase in novel supply markets to meet the burgeoning demand. As new avenues of drug trafficking emerge, police forces and law enforcement agencies have begun collaborating to thwart the supply chain channels. Additionally, governments and public health agencies must equally remain cautious and work with law enforcement agencies in educating communities on the ill effects of drugs to nurture an addiction-immune generation.
