THE URGENCY OF PARAREM IN EFFORTS TO PREVENT AND OVERCOME NARCOTIC ABUSE IN BALI
Narcotics crime is a serious crime that is the focus of all countries in the world, including Indonesia. Until now, narcotics abuse has reached a point of concern where the number of narcotics abusers is increasing with increasingly sophisticated modes of distribution. Such conditions have forced the Government of Indonesia to pursue an effective strategy involving the role of traditional villages in preventing and overcoming narcotics abuse, one of which is through the inclusion of a prohibition on narcotics abuse in customary law instruments. The prohibition of drug abuse along with the threat of sanctions against abusers in traditional villages in Bali is regulated in the Anti-Narcotics Pararem. The existence of the Pararem Anti-Narcotics apart from having a beneficial impact actually invites theoretical problems both in terms of urgency and relevance as well as the strength of its application as an instrument of customary law in the prevention and control of narcotics abuse. The research results show thatthe urgency of Pararem as one of the customary law instruments in Bali is felt to be very important considering pLaw enforcement should also use a local wisdom approach in order to obtain substantial justice, so that the application of Pararem does not actually rule out the existence of national law but is a manifestation of the need for regulation of narcotics abuse.
