A General Order on Strict Prohibition against Opium and Narcotic Drugs was issued by the Central People's Government Administration Council in February 1950. The Decision on the Prohibition against Narcotic Drugs was issued by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress in December 1990. Comrade Deng Xiaoping pointed out in early 1992 that "something locally decadent also came along since the opening up, such as drug abuse, prostitution, economic crimes, and other evil phenomenon emerged in some part of China. We must be steadfast with regard to these, both in combating crime and eliminating social evils, as we cannot just watch this happen." The Compulsory Rehabilitation Measures was issued by the State Council on January 12, 1995. The inscription of "Banning illicit drugs is not only a reward for now, but also a benefit for the future" was written by Comrade Jiang Zemin personally on May 20, 1998 for the anti-drug efforts. The Nationwide Anti-drug Exhibition held by the National Narcotics Control Commission in the Military Museum in Beijing took place On May 27, 1998. It attracted 480,000 people all over the country. The seven members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau also visited the anti-drug exhibition in person.

In April 2004, Mr. Hu Jintao, the General Secretary listened to the report given by the National Narcotics Control Commission on the national anti-drug work. Mr. Hu Jintao pointed out that "we should continue to make even greater efforts to carry out the anti-drug work so as to achieve remarkable results in publicity and education, crackdown by operation of law, rehabilitation in a scientific way, intensive management, and in international cooperation."
