Surabaya, E Java (ANTARA) – Chief of the National Narcotics Agency Office in East Java Province (BNNP) Brigadier General Idris Kadir has turned down a discourse on legalizing hashish in Indonesia.

Saying

The polemic on the legalization of hashish has emerged. As a law enforcement agency, we have an obstacle. It has been misconstrued, so it becomes legal.
“The polemic on the legalization of hashish has emerged. As a law enforcement agency, we have an obstacle. It has been misconstrued, so it becomes legal,” 

The United Nations has approved the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) recommendation to eliminate hashish from the category of the most dangerous drugs in the world and to use it for medical purposes.

Kadir noted that several countries have legalized hashish. The issue surfaced in Indonesia when a politician from the westernmost Indonesian province of Aceh proposed to declare an export commodity.

“However, BNN (the National Narcotics Agency) opined that narcotics remains unjustified. Moreover, hashish that originates from Indonesia, particularly Aceh, is of better quality when tested at the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol chemical) laboratory,” he stated.
