The number of drug users in China is on the rise. According to the Beijing Daily Messenger, there are 791 thousand drug users in China, a seven per cent increase compared with 2003.

Most of them are under 35.

The paper says that Chinese government is going to step up the fight against drugs. The plan is for tougher laws, encouraging people to report suspected drug users, setting up supervision and evaluation systems and promoting international anti-drug cooperation.
