Till today (2012), Taiwan is still endangered by narcotic drugs, from opium, heroin, and amphetamines in earlier years to ecstasy, ketamine, and other emerging drugs in recent years. Due to their widespread in the Taiwanese society, in order to reduce the internal problem of drug abuse that has surfaced in Taiwan, drug-related hazard control has become the issue the relevant authorities have to face.
In this study, with the policy and mechanism of narcotics hazard control as the basis, the document analysis method was adopted to explore the development of Taiwan’s drug prevention and the current implementation of the existing laws and regulations, as well as the condition of drug related crimes, with the hope of finding the most suitable drug prevention method,thereby effectively reducing the endangerment of drugs to our country.
Through data collection and compilation, it was found that Taiwan’s overall anti-drug strategic goals have failed to combine the core of the policies and legal norms. On the other hand, despite the local units’ implementation of multiple anti-drug mechanisms over the past decades, the central government did not assign people in charge of drug clearance, nor did it set up special drug prevention units. On top of that, the implementation of the related policies failed to significantly reduce the dangers of drugs.
Therefore, the purpose of the development of drug control policies and mechanisms is to reduce the endangerment of drugs to our country, while the integrity of the policies and the degree of implementation of the related mechanisms rely on whether or not the ruling party takes the severity of drug endangerment seriously. Only by engaging in compressive thinking of how to develop drug prevention policies and mechanisms and specific implementation can Taiwan be transformed into a “drug-free homeland.
