Rayong and the National Command Center for Drugs are recruiting area students from local schools to use social media to battle against drug use.

The Rayong Public Relations Department launched the program Sept. 22 at Mabtaputpantittayakarn School, getting 60 older students to set up a Facebook page to share information, spread government news and gather intelligence on classmates using drugs.

Mabtaputpantittayakarn Principal Niyom Bunyanam said the school always has made drug prevention a priority through screening programs that weed out high-risk students from the general population. But getting peers to watch each other would be another useful tool, he said.
