MOSCOW, December 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Head of Russia’s federal service on drug control (FSKN) Viktor Ivanov suggests setting up a task group at the authority to systematize the anti-drug legislation.
The current legislation does not respond to the modern demand, he said, it is necessary to systematize the existing norms and to offer new ones.
The country should have single standards, like, for example those listed in the Forestry or Air codes.
“It is high time to change dramatically the legal estimation and approaches to the anti-drug activities,” he told a roundtable at the State Duma on Monday. “Clearly, we should without delay work out a strategy to systematize the anti-drug legislation to have it work.”
“I believe it would be best to set up a task group under FSKN’s supervision and with the support from the State Duma and the Federation Council,” Ivanov said.
