The training course on drug inspection and precursor control is an important step towards releasing a national master plan for the control, prevention and countering against illegal drugs in the period of 2016-2020, especially a master plan on drug precursors, analysis and drug abuse inspection, lieutenant colonel Vongxay said, adding that it also implements and puts drug laws into practice.
