The Counter Narcotics Police of Afghanistan is the leading agency for counter narcotics law enforcement in Afghanistan.

The Afghan Special Narcotics Force's primary purpose is to assist the interdiction effort against trafficking networks throughout Afghanistan.

The primary purpose of the counter-narcotics Criminal Justice Task Force and the Central Narcotics Tribunal is to investigate and try those arrested on drugs-related charges, based on the processes defined in the Counter-Narcotics Law of Afghanistan (2006). Article 34 of the Counter Narcotics law defines the mandate of the Counter Narcotics Tribunal under the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of Afghanistan.
