http://www.voiceonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Pakistani-heroin-seized.jpgOver one billion dollars’ worth of heroin each year – that is the deadly fallout Pakistan gets from the blooming narcotics industry that provides the main cash crop in devastated Afghanistan. Locals say heroin is cheaper than food.

It’s thought Pakistan has more than four million drug addicts, but less than 80 dedicated drug rehab clinics.

As RT’s Lucy Kafanov reports from Karachi, those heroin addicts don’t even bother hiding their habit. For many this is a deadly path.

Heroin cheaper than [decent, healthy] food would be more accurate.

Recently, 8 Kgs of ganja -- and fresh crop, top quality 8) -- cost local 80,000 rupees (just under $800) so about $100/Kg......

How come that in most countries of the world its cheaper to buy fast food imported from god knows where, rather than buying healthy locally grown/produced food.? Answer probably lies in the countries perverse tax-systems.
