The drugs they were taking gave them an altered state of mind; men and women indulged in it with wild abandon.

According to a recent study by the UNO, the sale of narcotics generates 320 billion dollars world wide. Nearly 200 million people use illegal drugs, and among them 25 million are hardened drug users.
