LMM(86)25 The Hong Kong Experience in Attempting to Reduce the Demand for and Supply of Illicit Drugs

The abuse of opiate drugs was a major social problem in Hong Kong as long ago as 1842 when the population was only 12,360. Today the problem of drug abuse is still serious and Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas on earth with 5.4 million people living on a little over 1,000 square kilometres of land, much of it unusable hillsides and barren islets. The urban population density is 28,500 per square kilometre.
