Pakistani drug addict Imran, 29, rolls marijuana after injecting heroin at an abandoned house in 'Kala Pull' (Black Bridge) district of Karachi on July 23, 2011. Pakistan has more than four million drug addicts in its population of 170 million, according to figures compiled by the country's Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF). Pakistan’s Central Secretary General of Council of Herbal Physician Hakeem Qazi M.A. Khalid said that around 50 billion rupees were wasted in drug addiction every year in the country and 130,000 people took intoxicants through injections while 80 percent addicts used the same syringes which were also cause of fatal diseases. Most of the heroin is smuggled from neighbouring Afghanistan through Pakistan's northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
