Taipei, May 11 (CNA) Premier Lin Chuan (林全) said on Thursday that the government plans to adopt a more human-centric strategy to fight the spread of narcotics and is planning to spend NT$10 billion (US$331.3 million) on such efforts over the next four years.
The planned spending marks a significant increase from the current level of NT$1.2 billion per year, Lin said at a press conference held after a weekly Cabinet meeting.
He said about 60,000 people in Taiwan were arrested for involvement in drug-related cases last year, with 27,000 of those sent to jail. [FULL STORY]
