CARACAS (Xinhua) – Venezuelan authorities have seized 16 tons of illicit drugs so far this year. According to Juan Pedro Grillo, head of the National Anti-Narcotics Bureau (ONA), Venezuela has also deported several foreign drug cartel chiefs who were arrested here. The Interior Ministry, which oversees the ONA, for example, is working with the Youth Ministry, the Sports Ministry, the Education Ministry and the Culture Ministry to devise programs to steer young people away from drugs, said Mr Grillo.
