crack. According to the annual report of United Nations Office on drug and crime, Pakistan’s
annual heroine market is worth $1.2 billion. More than 90% of the world’s opium which is
used for the production of alcohol and heroine is produced in neighboring country
Afghanistan and distributed to Pakistan, Iran and other countries. Pakistan is one of the main
suppliers of heroine to the whole world. According to government sources, 600,000 people
enter into drug abuse in Pakistan annually. Drug use has several adverse effects. One is that
drug addiction can destroy the lives of drug users and their families. Another is that drug
