O is for Opium
I recently learned that there is a massive drugs problem in Afghanistan. This country which has been a war boun country for over ten years now is also one of the biggest producers of opiates. What I did not realize is they are also one of the biggest consumers since they can find it really cheap.
Groups of people will spend all day huddles together taking drugs and some mothers use it as pain relief when having children because there is poor medical care. This results in many children being addicted too!
This is a terrible problem which I hope some charities will try and help with soon
