Cuba: Cuba's Farmers Vow To Fight Drugs

Wed, 29 Jan 2003 08:00:00 GMT

Wilmington Morning Star, 29 Jan 2003 - HAVANA - Cuba's small farmers pledged to help fight the communist island's incipient drug problem Tuesday, saying they will watch out for and report others who grow, sell or use narcotics in the countryside.

Cuba: Crackdown On Drug Production

Fri, 31 Jan 2003 08:00:00 GMT

New York Times, 31 Jan 2003 - The Cuban government has announced a crackdown on vice, acknowledging that the country not only has a problem with drug use, but also with domestic production. The campaign was announced this week in Granma, the Communist Party newspaper, which said that those found guilty of using, selling or growing drugs would lose their homes, among other penalties. The government decree also singled out prostitution and other antisocial offenses. The decree is the first public acknowledgment that some farmers were growing marijuana in the countryside. Although the government has always maintained that domestic drug use is lower than in surrounding islands, it has grown in recent years, at least partly because of Cuba's increased flow of tourists. Similarly, prostitution has flourished in recent years, catering to Europeans and other tourists. - --- MAP posted-by: Jo-D
