    8.9 million get addicted to drugs every year in Pakistan, Senate body told
    By Zahid Gishkori
    Published: July 6, 2015

    ISLAMABAD: Four rupees are spent on each drug addict in the country, a Senate body was informed on Monday.

    In a meeting held on Monday with Senator Rehman Malik in chair, Senate’s Standing Committee on Interior and Anti-Narcotics was apprised that approximately 8.9 million people in Pakistan become addicted to drugs every year, while 35 million people are directly affected.

    “Pakistan has allocated Rs27 million annually for these addicts,” said Director General Anti Narcotics Force, Major General Khawar Hanif.

    Furthering the discussion, Brig Zahid Abdullah said, “There is an estimated $US435billion drug economy in the world whereas a poppy crop of 0.5 million acres was cultivated last year.”


    Asked whether the money acquired from drugs is fuelling terrorism, Secretary Anti-narcotics Ghalib Bandesha said, “There is no direct nexus between terrorism and drug money in Pakistan. That is what our investigation revealed.”

    That's a total lie. Drugs and Arms are the two of the most prime form of currency in in black market. Both have been used by Taliban in the past to spread their terrorism in afganistan.

    It's what you quoted.
    //There is no direct nexus between terrorism and drug money in Pakistan. That is what our investigation revealed.”//

    There is actually direct relation between drug money and terrorism.

    Hi,
    before making *** of yourself like you always do. Ask first !

    This is what i meant by saying the line speaks for itself " that if they are saying there is no link, then one can wonder what good the investigation was about"

    Heroin is a huge menace. It's hardly talked about, but it could be one of our biggest problems in the future.

    Somehow the number seems to be off. If 8.9 million addicts are being added each year then by now every other person should be a drug addict.
