The Family Ministry has launched a national campaign on drug abuse aimed to raise more awareness.

How do you realise teenagers are taking drugs? What advice can one give to someone using drugs? What are the effects of specific drugs? How can you distinguish between drugs? How easily accessible are drugs?

These are some of the questions that this campaign will answer over the next months, which is mostly aimed at adolescents.

It was launched by Family Minister Michael Falzon and parliamentary secretary Alex Muscat.

“Just Facts Malta” was compiled after consultation with young adults, some of whom experienced drug use.
