Of course people still do heroin. Prescription pills are lame and expensive. Heroin is a more efficient use of money.
>> The UAE embassy said he had died of natural causes.
lol yep, heroin OD is pretty natural.
I can't speak for international use of heroin, but for America, I totally blame the Reagan's "Just Say No!" campaign. They treated drug addiction like there were dirty pushers around every street corner, and that simply saying "No!" to a substance which creates the best feeling in the world was enough to end it all for good. But never once did the "Just Say No!" campaign actually go over WHY drugs could be bad, or their actual mechanisms of use. Every time drugs were depicted, they were always these indescribable, weird looking objects which never accurately showed what they were. My brother once won a "Just Say No!" drawing contest, and he colored a pile of cocaine green. These campaigns traded in ignorance, while in turn never actually explaining how the good shit can be found as easily as Grandma's medicine cabinet. They also never explained why certain drugs might be worse than others, what could compel someone to want to try it, what could happen if you mix drugs... nothing. Reagan's position was simply "don't do it"... and now we're starting to see the real world, long-term consequences of raising a generation of children to be ignorant about drugs.
Drug use is so common now that there are characters in sitcoms which are maybe the main character's drug-addicted (current or recovering) kid. Like, in the Netflix show Grace and Frankie starring prototypical Boomers Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, Tomlin's character's son is a recovering addict. Also in the upcoming Star Trek Picard series, Michelle Hurd plays a character who is a former intelligence officer struggling with substance abuse. I can't tell if these shows are trying to use the characters as vehicles to address drug abuse, but it definitely has reached a point where characters dealing with addiction are now character tropes no longer relegated to a single "very special episode".
The death of this Shiekh's son probably would've happened regardless of the drug use issues happening in the West. But I'm definitely curious to find out how much about his use and abuse was because of the rise in drug abuse in the US.
i dont blame him. theres nothing better to do in the sandland, anyway lol.
