“Self-consumption of illicit drugs is legal”, “There will be only slight legal consequence for young drug trafficker” … Although above messages are prevalent among drug abusers, they are just myths. Disseminating correct legal knowledge among the community is helping prevent people from falling into drug traps. Also, as helping professionals, we may also have chance to interact with clients who are abusing drugs. What are our responsibilities from the legal perspective? What are the reminders to support our clients with drug-related offences?
The council and Community Drug Advisory Council (社區藥物教育輔導會) co-organize a sharing session with sharing from experienced social worker and lawyers, aiming to equip social service practitioners, especially those from the Ethnic Minority community, with drug-related legal knowledge.
Details are as follows:
- To learn the basic knowledge on drug-related criminal liability and judicial procedures
- To dispel misunderstanding of drug abuse
- To know the legal lability when interacting with drug abusers
|Date:||23 September 2022 (Friday)|
|Time:||2:30pm – 4:00pm|
|Fee:||Free of Charge|
(Ethnically diverse social service practitioners are highly recommended)
