“As your Police Commissioner I have seen the effects of drugs on children, I have seen Mom’s and Dad’s who have lost their children as a result of marijuana.”

He said he had also seen children who have forgotten there purpose in life.

Naivalurua did not mince in his words that drugs is a serious issue in the region that needs to be eradicated.

“I’m here on a serious business, here to tell you there is no place for drugs in Fiji and precisely here in Navosa.”
