Considering Iran is an Islamic Republic under Islamic law, its quite posible and likely to think alcohol is included into the drug statistics.

I'll try to contact some Iranian immigrants I know in belgium to ask if Alcohol is considered a drug in their homecountry.

It blows my mind that thinking people can just eat this type of garbage up.

THIS IS PROPAGANDA PEOPLE! WAKE UP!

"Hey Bob, did you hear that really horrible 'fact' about those people whos oil we want and whos gov we want to overthrow?!"

"Gee, no I didn't Joe! Why don't you tell me so I have a reason to hate them too?!"

"Well sure here it goes Bob.. did YOU KNOW that almost a FULL 20% of Irans population are using drugs?!"

"Frack no!? Are you serious Joe? Well if you look at all the damn starbucks, the drug company commercials on tv, the tobacco industry (which americans have been supporting for years and years and years.. and it keeps killing them over and over and over again), the 'war on drugs', the sex industry and porn and prositution on the net, it would seem as though EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN IS ADDICTED TO SOMETHING OR OTHER.. most of them illegal substances. BTW.. did you know that like 1 in every 150 americans is in jail? And something like 1 in every 50 is a fellon? Yeah its a country full of drug addicts and criminals and prostitution... but unfortunetly very little oil so WE the people end up having to hear some bull# statistic about some other country that does have oil so the home team has some support when it goes over there. Do you understand me Joe?"

"Uh... you are with us or against us? Uh.. we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud? Lets roll? Uh.. axis of evil? I did not have relations with that women?"

"Yeah thats what I figured, Joe."



You need your head examined if you believe ANYTHING the anyone says about ANY arab country right now other then the fact that they are in deep # because someone pulled off a fake terror attack (or two... three actually.. actually.. would you believe its more like ten major fake terror attacks) and blamed it on them.. and the only people who believe it are the people who believe 'facts' like this one that started this thread.


Not to mention the fact that.... its just so rediculas to point the finger at another countries drug abuse these days.. lololol.

Iran also has a bigger plastic surgery business than anywhere else in the world (including Los Angeles).

Nose jobs are big business over there with both women and men.

This is dead set serious as well, sounds like a joke but it's true. Makes you wonder how many things like this people miss when determining that a nation is full of deprived savages and must be liberated by America.

Well then I guess we americans have them beat on that issue now don't we

I've attended five schools in my lifetime and so this number is shocking to me. I would have guessed way more users than that. Here in the states , and not from any statistic I would guess we are at about 38% illegal drug use and about another 72% are on some type of constant use prescribed drugs. And out of that 72% atleast 60% are cronic pain and anxiety drugs. Take a look around at all these online "pharmacies" and if you peak out your sheltered windows you'll probally see a pain clinic on three of the four corners. Thats if you live in a city, in the country you'll see more "home grown" health remedies.

In the hood expect to see "developers" of the hard stuff. Crack,meth, and so on.
Even the prez had his smokin days.

Not really that big of a deal. IMHO the only people really concerned over such is those who had led seriously sheltered lives...the very same that prolly will not admit they are suffering from panic disorder.
If this subject upsets you, see a doctor, take a pill, or listen to that lady with the clipboard ask..."and how does that make you feel"
Come on people wake up and smell the poppiez..lol j/k
It really is gonne be ok.

That would be true. Well maybe not the capital, but I see where your coming from, it is very cheap to get plastic surgery over in Iran as the docs there need the experience.

Found this today:

"Bad Driving, Drugs, Heart Disease Main Killers In Iran Mon. 9 May 2005

Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty

Tehran - More than 40,000 Iranians have died from narcotics abuse between the start of the year and 20 March, with just over 26,000 dying in car crashes.

Radio Farda cited a report issued by the Iranian state coroner that said car crashes were the premier cause of "unnatural" deaths, and a source of serious injury to some 250,000 Iranians.

Most "natural" deaths were due to cardiac and cardiovascular conditions, with heart attacks the leading cause of death in that category, the report stated.

Medical centers run by the state coroner's office also treated 1.5 million Iranians injured in fights, while just over 1,400 Iranians have drowned so far this year, the report stated."

Drug related deaths in one of Iran top killers. Iran clearly has a drug problem. I cant wait until they have nuclear weapons! Drugs and Jihad, what a wonderful mix!

You don't have to read too far to see the anomaly in your figures and the report.

You didn't add an extra zero or something to the drug deaths by mistake, did you? How would you explain the anomaly, and your lack of presentation of the link?

If drug abuse is purported to be a "natural" death, then let's go talk to the coroner ourselves, as an ATS research project.


Tsk tsk tsk, skippy, tsk tsk tsk. *

www.rferl.org...

Follow Up: I've checked the source, the figures are as reported, which means that either drug abuse is a "natural" cause in Iran, or the journalist writing it is drunk.


* Aussie humor.

Ok, thanks to vigilant news reporting by Skippy, and the salvo of his posts about all thing Middle Eastern, we are now have irrefutable proof that Muslims are a deranged crowd of gay junkies who stone people for the good sport of it, and then turn into terrorist bent on the destruction of the US (it really follows, doesn't it).

How many people in the US use alcohol, cigarettes [nicotine], pharmaceuticals and other drugs?

Im sure it is way more than 16%.

Your cultural bias is showing.

I'd have actually said Korea. It's a huge business there, and they can get completely obsessed with it, especially the eyelid surgery. Had no idea.

Wanted to give you a ATS award for the month but I used them up.
Here's a quick search list of the American Drug Addicts

8,700,000 children on anti-depressants.
125 million Americans Total on anti-depressants (One Third of the population )
1 million heroin addicts
10.5 million alcoholics
3.6 million coc aine users
10 million meth addicts
12 million weed users (monthly 22 million annually)
??? Million prescription drug addicts
108 million daily coffee drinkers
btwn 45 and 64 million tobacco users


Prescription Drug Abuse Continues to Rise

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 20 million people needed but did not receive treatment for an alcohol or drug problem in 2003.

i.e. these 20 million called a clinic at some point, or were refered to a clinic, but there was no bed available for them to detox and get straight


Iran has nothing on the US.
We're number one (drug addicted nation)
