Restoration Council of the Shan State – the Political Wing
Shan State Army – the Military Wing
Shan State Army (SSA), the military wing of the Restoration Council of the Shan State (RCSS, established 1999), has adopted the policy of drug eradication since 1996 realizing the dangers of drugs affecting its communities badly in many aspects.
In 2012, RCSS established a department to carry out its drug eradication policy. It has also been working on the drug policy implementation issues with several organizations including UNODC (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime), the TNI (Transnational Institute) and others.
