A Pakistani heroin addict, holds a syrin

A Pakistani heroin addict, holds a syringe after injecting heroin in the middle of a street in 'Kala Pull', (Black Bridge) district of Karachi on July 25, 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 Physicians Hakeem Qazi M.A.Khalid said that around 50 billion Pakistan Rupees were wasted in drug addiction every year in the country and 130,000 people took intoxicants through injections while 80 percent of addicts are using the same syringes which could lead to the contraction of fatal diseases. Much of the heroin is smuggled from neighbouring Afghanistan through Pakistan's northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
