Bad News from Russia

From the BBC:
"In Russia today there are over 10 million drug addicts, that is people whose lives are wholly dependent upon a dose of drugs. The average age of those addicted to heroin, ecstasy, marijuana and cocaine is going down with every year. Now teenagers of 13-15 are starting to use drugs. Every year over 50 tons of heroin alone goes through Russian territory. Inside the country, the narcotics trade is running at $15 billion," according to figures given in "Drug trafficking" shown in NTVMir's "Top Secret" programme on 14 January.
