International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking

Since 1989, the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, also recognized as World Drug Day, has been observed on June 26 every year by the United Nations. This day serves as a platform to enhance collaboration and take concerted actions towards the goal of creating a world free from drug abuse. The chosen date, June 26, marks the conclusion of Lin Zexu's efforts to dismantle the opium trade in Humen, Guangdong, which officially ended on June 25.
