Narcotics

Narcotics or Drugs is any of substances that blunt the senses, as opium, morphine, belladonna, and alcohol, that in large quantities produce euphoria, stupor, or coma, that when used constantly can cause habituation or addiction, and that are used in medicine to relieve pain, cause sedation, and induce sleep.

Afghanistan is called the Golden Crescent in International Narcotics Trade. It is the largest producer of Narcotics like Opium, Heroin and Hashish (Charas). Unfortunately, since the Afghan War in 1989, Pakistan has suffered a huge influx of drugs due to porous borders with Afghanistan and resultantly has the highest number of (5 million) drug addicts in the world. The fact that the narcotics’ dealers are using women and children for trafficking has added more complexity to the issue. However, the police department of district Multan is ready to take on the challenge.
