Karding asked the police, especially the National Narcotics Agency (BNN) to immediately socialize the adverse effects of drug use containing carisoprodol such as PCC, tramadol and somadril in the community.

"So these drugs should only be used by doctors to patients and not sold freely," he said.
The Secretary General of the PKB assessed that weak supervision made the drugs vulnerable to misuse and sales not only through pharmacy networks but also through social media and online shopping sites.
In addition, according to him, the cheap price makes teenagers who are looking for identity becomes prone to victim and they are not difficult to find sellers of drugs hard in cyberspace.
