Supply of opium to addicts
The NDPS Act, 1985 empowers the State Governments to permit and regulate supply of opium to addicts where such supply is a medical necessity.
Opium addicts registered with the State Governments are supplied opium by the Governments. The Government Opium and Alkaloid Works at Ghazipur and Neemuch sell opium to the State Governments who, in turn, supply it to the addicts.
