INDONESIA INTENSIFYING FIGHT AGIANST ILLICIT DRUGS TO SAVE YOUNGER GENERATION by Fardah Assegaf

      Jakarta, Feb 28, 2006  (ANTARA News) - Eddy, a security guard, still mourns the death of his only son. His son was only 23 year-old when he died two years ago due to a narcotic overdoze.
      He could not believe that his son, a good boy from a modest family, was a drug addict given the fact that the family was not rich and certainly could not afford "the luxury" of consuming narcotics or other illicit drugs.
      Thousands of young men have wasted their lives because of illicit drugs in Indonesia. They were mostly victims of a "cruel" environment, a broken home, poverty, ignorance, curiosity, or particularly of the illegal drug mafia.
