The State of Kuwait is one highly against drug use for non-medical purposes. Kuwait considers it a more serious crime for a person to make it easier for another person to access drugs, even if the facilitator/dealer himself does not use drugs.

a. The large underground community involved in the illegal sale and exchange of narcotics.

b. The availability and ease of access to narcotics.

c. The positive emotions brought to citizens through abusing narcotics.

2. Past Action

a. Organisations targeted at prevention of drug use have been formed, such as the National Anti-Drugs Committee (NADC)/Ghiras National Awareness Project against Drugs (GHIRAS), which has conducted various activities such as forums to educate youths on narcotics, as well as has a website accessible to citizens.
