Taiwan's police arrested nearly 2,000 drug users and traffickers during a three-day campaign that began on July 29, seizing 38.8 kilograms of drugs.
Police said in a press conference on Tuesday that among the suspected traffickers, 203 were adults while 72 were under age. Drug cases involving minors are increasing when schools are closed for summer holiday, according to police, who said they only arrested 16 under-age drug traffickers in a crackdown in early July.
In a typical case in the recent campaign, the police found 20 teenagers taking drugs at a gathering in Taoyuan City.
Educational institutions on the island reported 1,020 drug-related cases to the police in 2015.
