Overwhelming support for drug tests
(07-02 15:59)

A public consultation has found "overwhelming support" for a proposal to allow law enforcement officers to require anyone to undergo a compulsory drug test -- if they were suspected of having taken drugs.
The Action Committee Against Narcotics said the consultation showed general support for the need to do more to facilitate early identification of drug abusers.
The proposal would allow officers to authorize drug-testing when "there were reasonable grounds based on strong circumstantial conditions" to suspect a person has taken dangerous drugs. --RTHK
