"Until we calculate and see how many people take these substances, we will never know the real level of danger that we will face in the future. We will not have young people. We will not have a young healthy generation. Who will come after us? Who will become politicians? Who will become deputies? Who will become teachers? Who will become pilots?" he asked during the forum "Police for a healthy lifestyle", which was held for the first time at the premises of the House of Youth on Tuesday, February 28.
The head of the department noted that in 2016, the police confiscated almost 100 kilograms of drugs.
"Earlier we confiscated 4-5 kilograms and used to say that it was too much taking into account that one dose of drugs equals to 0.01 grams," Yuri Ruzlyaev added.
According to him, drugs and illegal alcohol are delivered to the Penza region in terrifying amount.
"Counterfeit alcohol is delivered in huge quantities. [...] The whole quantity of alcohol brought to the Penza region divided to the number of its residents (including 95- and 100-year-old people, and newly born babies) equals to 9 litres per person," Yuri Ruzlyaev said.
