Afghani women addicted to heroin

The first ever drug rehabilitation clinic for women has been opened in Afghanistan to help women and young girls who have become opium and heroine addicts.

‘You have no pain when u smoke it’ is what a woman says, whilst a 12 year old girl, already an addict, declares to have started when she was little, smoking what her mother left after she had smoked in the first place. According to the video there are 920,000 drug addicts in Afghanistan, 13 % of which are women (7% of these are girls under 16 years of age).
