Iran's hidden scourge: widespread drug abuse at all levels of society
Mr. Deylamizade estimates that Iran, with a population of roughly 80 million, may have as many as five million hard-core addicts and millions more occasional users.

Drug use sometimes seems endemic among the young. At a stoplight in Tehran, a pair of young women driving a late-model car blithely pulled out a glass pipe and passed it back and forth until the light turned green. “It’s so much worse than when I was a teenager,” says a young man who works at a central mosque that hosts a self-help group for addicts.

Five million out of eighty million? That's nothing compared to the USA. The number of people on hardcore drugs in the USA is at least a hundred million.

In a squalid back alley in Tehran, addicts are shooting up. "I have no hope in my life any more", despairs one. Iran has the highest heroin addiction rate in the world. No other country even comes close.
