Osaka Prefecture plans to reform its ordinance to prohibit accommodation operators from allowing dealers of quasi-legal drugs to stay, following the recent eradication of such dealers’ outlets in the prefecture.

The prefecture will announce the names of the operators, if they repeatedly breach the planned ordinance. The bill will be submitted to the prefectural assembly on Tuesday. If passed, it will take effect in March.
