Contamination of Street Drugs:
After the World Trade Center was reduced to rubble on September 11 and now that the Pentagon has a major hole in one side of it, we?re all waiting for the next shoe to drop. Most of us are worried about contaminants being dropped from the air or slipped into water supplies. But future attacks may not come from such obvious sources.
A government spokesman recently warned that they are worried about tainted heroin from poppies grown in Afghanistan being shipped to drug addicts in the U.S. Something like this actually happened in Scotland a year ago, where 23 drug users died after injecting contaminated heroin. More than 40 people across the U.K. and Ireland are also believed to have died after taking the drug.
