The People will launch a war on drugs

From Xinhua:

Special columns will appear on 41 major local newspapers from 28 provinces to support the country's "people's war" on drugs as of June 1, sources with China's Public Security Ministry said.

It will be the first time that so many mainstream newspapers open the same columns on drug prevention during the same period, said the ministry. The National Narcotics Control Commission and related departments initiated the unusual campaign to match the nationwide battle against drug crimes.

The Chinese government has decided to launch a "people's war" against drugs during the rest of this year...

It must be nice to just make a few phone calls and get your publicity campaign splashed across the nation's press.
