Reform and Reconstruction Alliance MP Ghayeb al-Amiri on Sunday blamed the government, the security forces and the border guards for the spread of drugs in the country, accusing them of failing to protect the borders.

"In the past, Iraq was only a path, but now [it became] an environment for the spread of drugs. Youth has become a target of this scourge," Amiri said.

Amiri called on the government to be strict to face those who smuggle, sell or use drugs.
