KUNMING, Oct. 23 (Xinhua) -- About 44 tonnes of narcotics were seized in the first nine months of the year, according to the National Narcotics Control Commission on Tuesday.
From January to September, police detained about 94,000 suspects in 78,000 drug-related cases, the commission said at a drug rehabilitation meeting held in Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province.
The country has seen positive changes in narcotics control with drug production contained, cross-border traffic severely blown and illegal production and distribution of precursor chemicals under control, the commission said.
Community correction programs for drug addicts also made progress, it also said.
About 1.88 million former drug users have not relapsed for three years since rehabilitation, up 12.9 percent year on year.
