These include the establishment of the N Card, elevating the NCB to the national nodal agency status, and forming the JCC.

A Standing Inter-Ministerial Committee has been set up to prevent the misuse of dual-use drugs, along with the implementation of integrated databases like MIDAAN and the SIMS E-portal for analyzing drug trafficking trends and managing databases. Furthermore, the National Narcotic K9 Pool has been established, and assets are being analyzed by ED and other intelligence agencies, leading to seizures and more.

Stringent action must be taken against drug dealers and traders, which will bolster the anti-drug campaign and deter others from entering the illicit trade.
