Argentina Creates New Anti-Drug Agency

BUENOS AIRES – The Argentine government decreed Monday the creation of a Drug War Undersecretariat, which will work to prevent the wrongful use and illicit trafficking of drugs, and will provide technical assistance in related court cases.

The decree, signed by President Mauricio Macri, Cabinet chief Marcos Peña and Security Minister Patricia Bullrich, makes the new agency responsible for coordinating and executing government anti-drug actions, and for planning the registration, technical analysis and use-control of the chemical raw materials of mind-altering drugs.

It will also be charged with controlling any transactions involving the possession, use, production, manufacturing and transport of chemical ingredients and substances that can be used to make drugs, and will provide counsel in criminal cases related to drug trafficking.

“Confront and defeat” drug trafficking is one of the missions Macri has declared for his term as president, which began last Dec. 10.
