Watch out, Indonesia has become a drug producer






Indonesia is considered no longer a consumer, but also a producer who exports drugs. The number of drugs entering Indonesia in large numbers is one indication.
"I think it is clear, it is not possible just to meet domestic needs," explained the Chairperson of the Anti-Narcotics Movement DPP, Marwan Ja'far, on Sunday (06/10/2012).


Such drugs may not be stored for long, so they must be circulated immediately to make money. It believes that large quantities of drugs which the authorities later confiscated have the potential to be re-exported.
In early May the National Narcotics Agency (BNN) seized nearly 1.5 million ineks, whose value was not less than Rp400 billion at Tanjung Priok Port, Jakarta. The Polda Metro Jaya soon secured evidence of 351 kg of methamphetamine worth no less than Rp700 billion.


Recently, the Directorate of Narcotics and Organized Crime of the National Police Bareskrim revealed that a warehouse of hundreds of kilograms of methamphetamine is ready to be distributed along with 350 sacks more precursors in the form of soda soda.
Marwan considered that the findings of the National Police Headquarters in the form of large numbers of precursors also indicated large quantities of drug production. "It is clear that Indonesia has become a producer," he explained.


In addition, Marwan said, drug networks or syndicates in Indonesia must be related to networks, even drug cartels abroad. "Of course they also send each other drugs to meet the market needs of each region," he added.
The pattern of relationships can be a symbiosis of mutualism with an egalitarian position. But it can be hierarchical. The big cartel is certainly the one who controls it, because it is not just selling drugs, but has also entered the stage of influencing political policy.
"This is what we fear the most. We have to fight drugs. Don't let drugs become political regimes," Marwan added, as reported by the Alert page.
Member of the DPR Law Commission, Achmad Basarah, expressed concern that Indonesia's reputation in the eyes of the international community was increasingly destroyed as the quality of drug crimes increased. Indonesia has increased its role in this crime, both as producers, distributors and consumers.


Indonesia is positioned in line with other drug producing countries.
They are countries that are a hotbed of drug crime, which not only circulates, but also influences the country's political policies.
"If conditions continue to be allowed, Indonesia will be like them, the drug cartels will control politics. It can be further destroyed by this country," said Basarah who is also Deputy Secretary General of the PDIP DPP.
It hopes that all elements of the nation will actively participate in eradicating this crime. Prevention must be at the forefront so that drug cartels do not enter the political and government environment.


Legal authorities authorized in the field of drug eradication, continued Achmad, must be sterile from the involvement of drug cartel networks. They must dare to act decisively to eradicate and follow up on the crime of drug syndicates.
Officials also must rehabilitate drug addicts so that the drug market in Indonesia can also be prevented from developing. "Narcotics must be comprehensively addressed," he explained. *
