MONROVIA, March 26 (LINA) -The Liberian Senate has submitted two Acts to the House of Representatives for concurrence.

One Act is an amendment to the Penal Law of Liberia Chapter 14, under the title: offenses involving danger to the persons by adding thereto sub-Chapter E, under the title, Controlled drugs and substances Act of 2014: Amending thereto an Act creating the Drug Enforcement Agency.
