Iraq's Drug Problem

Riverbend is back, with a long article on drugs - from valium used to still panicking aunts during "Shock And Awe" to newly available cocaine et al.. Just a short excerpt:

One friend of E.'s was actually detained on one occasion by some Iraqi police because he had forgotten his car's registration papers. He was hauled off to the station along with his cousin and they were both locked up in a crowded cell. Half an hour into the detention, a police officer came along with some sort of pill and offered it to the prisoners for 250 Iraqi dinars a piece.
