MOSCOW, December 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s State Duma insists on introduction of criminal responsibility for advertising of drugs on the Internet, head of the lower house’s security commission Irina Yarovaya (United Russia) said on Monday.“We believe we should have criminal responsibility for advertising of drugs on the Internet,” she told the roundtable meeting devoted to “additional measures of legal regulations on prevention of drug addiction and on security of life and health.” “Clearly, the easily available information (on drugs) and its wide presentation continue to form interest from the younger generations,” she said.
In anticipation to a possible discussion whether that may affect some rights and freedoms, Yarovaya said “the ban on distribution of information, which already comprises a realistic threat to life and health, it is not a violation of rights or freedoms.”
In April of the current year, the security commission recommended to the lower house to discuss in the first reading a bill, introducing additional responsibility for propaganda of drugs. As yet, the first reading has not happened.
Besides, Yarovaya said, it would be necessary now to organize a common database on children, whose families were in complicated situations. “We have very many authorities, which are involved in children’s security,” she said. As now school children may undergo drug tests, in cases of positive results “we should be ready to offer complex assistance both to the child and the family.” However, this may not bring any results, “if the activities continue to be separated, if the authorities are involved only in their direction, if we do not have the information exchange, a common complex program to assist the family and the child - not from the point of view of public reprobation, but from the point of view of a delicate, direct, personalised and very clear cooperation between all those authorities, families and teenagers seeking assistance of the kind,” she said.
