Politicians are campaigning against drug users when they have nothing to offer

Tomas Zabransky, Head for Research and Development of the Centre for Addictology, and Jakub Frydrych, head of the National Drug Squad, participated in a radio programme discussing political aims to remove drug use and drug users from local neighbourhoods. Politicians are responding to the drug problem in an ineffective way, despite the number of drug users in the Czech Republic not rising and their removal from city centres being ineffective and almost impossible.

The whole interview can be found HERE. Zabransky also participated in creating a campaign on the streets of Prague that focuses upon the paradoxical approach of citizens and politicians towards a selected range of addictive substances. The campaign, in which a women using prescription drugs suggests sterilisation for junkies, and a smoker claims that she would scratch her daughter's eyes out if she caught her with a joint of marijuana, was also subject to coverage by the main TV channel.
