It is located at the southern part of the city towards Rivercess, Bong and Grand Bassa counties.“We are embarking on a plan to eradicate the cultivation of marijuana,” said LDEA County Commander Julius C. Kanubah, Sr.He said the LDEA is adopting a special program in an integrated approach to provide a source of livelihood for communities that are suspected of being involved in the illicit growth of harmful plants in the county.The LDEA is a semi-autonomous agency under the supervisory authority of the Ministry of Justice, responsible for effective and efficient enforcement of laws pertaining to controlled drugs, substances and precursors, including essential chemicals.It plays a drug-crime focused role in national law enforcement. The agency implements measures to protect the territorial borders of Liberia from the importation and exportation of drugs and controlled substances with the vision to become the most proactive and one of the leading drug law enforcement agencies in West Africa.LDEA agents are reportedly among some of the best in the world through the provision of effective and efficient services to Liberians by cutting off the supply of illicit drugs, reducing demand for illicit drugs and other substances of abuse, tracing and recovering drug-related proceeds and contributing to the creation and maintenance of an enviable image of the country throughout the world.Their mission is to “disrupt, dismantle, and eliminate all threats posed to the country by illicit drug trafficking and abuse,” to which it deploys “all resources at its disposal for a complete purge of illicit trafficking in narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances; suppression of demand for illicit drugs and other substances of abuse; retrieval of ill-gotten wealth acquired from proceeds of illicit drug trade; protection, enhancement and maintenance of the image of Liberia and Liberians in the Diasporas.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
