In Brief: Anti-drug message during pchum ben

Government officials hope Buddhist teachings will send a strong anti-drug message during the Pchum Ben festival. The Ministry of Religion and Cults instructed the heads of pagodas and monks to warn of the dangers. Chea Vannath, former president of the Center for Social Development, welcomed the move but said anti-drug teachings shouldn't be restricted to the pagoda. "Education about illegal drugs should be done on all media," she said.
