(ABC News) Exclusive: Skyrocketing Heroin, Opium Use Ensnaring Afghan Children - Democratic Underground

(ABC News) Exclusive: Skyrocketing Heroin, Opium Use Ensnaring Afghan Children - Democratic Underground: "Staggering levels of opium and heroin have been detected in Afghan children as young as 14 months by a team of researchers hired by the US State Department, revealing a fast-emerging problem that could cripple American efforts to bring stability to the war-torn country.'I think we've opened a can of worms,' said Bruce Goldberger, one of the University of Florida scientists heading up the study, who spoke exclusively with Brian Ross for a report airing on World News with Diane Sawyer and Nightline tonight. 'This was just totally unexpected. No one has ever seen this type of exposure in young children. It's never been documented. And it's laying a foundation for drug abuse for a whole generation.'
This first-ever look at household exposure to opium and heroin is not yet complete, but State Department officials and contractors shared preliminary findings exclusively with ABC News in hopes of drawing attention to a problem they say has been largely overlooked. The researchers said what they uncovered is both shocking and tragic."

Dutch to raise minimum age for prostitutes to 21

Dutch to raise minimum age for prostitutes to 21: "Dutch government said yesterday it plans to raise the legal minimum age for prostitution to 21 from 18 as part of stricter permit rules for brothels and registration requirements for prostitutes.
Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin has sent the proposal to Parliament as an addition to legislation which updates the law regulating prostitution and sex businesses. “People at the age of 21 can make a better judgment about working as a prostitute than 18 year olds; also they are better equipped to deal and negotiate with clients,” the Ministry of Justice said in a statement.
Prostitution was legalised in the Netherlands in 2000 but authorities have toughened their stance on the business in recent years to fight organised crime and clean up inner city areas."

allAfrica.com: Mozambique: Police Hunt for Gang Who Attacked Tourists

allAfrica.com: Mozambique: Police Hunt for Gang Who Attacked Tourists: "information that might lead to the arrest of a gang of thieves and rapists who attacked South African tourists last week to come forward.
Anyone who knew the whereabouts of the gang could report it to any police station, he said, during his weekly briefing with the Mozambican media.
Cossa confirmed that on 5 April, two armed men attacked a tourist resort in Zavala district in the southern province of Inhambane. They attacked a family of South African tourists, and stole their vehicle and possessions. One of the women in the group was raped. The tourists reported that they lost 70,000 rands (about 9,600 US dollars).
Cossa said that the vehicle, a Mitsubishi, was found abandoned in the neighbouring province of Gaza a few days later. He was unable to confirm reports that the two gunmen were part of a gang of four dangerous criminals who had escaped from the Maputo top security prison in March."

Why do Heroin users inject into their veins? | How Do I Get Off Drugs?

Why do Heroin users inject into their veins? | How Do I Get Off Drugs?: "veins are the quickest blood route to the brain. Injecting into a vein means the drug takes effect almost instantly. The drug is carried with the blood directly to the brain.The only other quickest way is to snort the drug, snorting heroin is nasty!
oh right you knew about how it’s quicker. Intramuscular injection would be too slow, the drug would slowly reach the blood stream, the hit would be very mild but would last longer. Once you have a tolerance injecting it into the muscle wouldn’t do any good."

CBC News - Montreal - 25 men to move to Tanguay jail

CBC News - Montreal - 25 men to move to Tanguay jail: "women's prison in Montreal will soon be host to 25 male inmates as a temporary solution to overcrowding in mens' prisons.
Quebec's ministry of public security invested $2.7 million in renovations to the Tanguay Jail to house the male inmates in a separate section of the prison.
Stephane Lemaire, president of the union representing the province's correctional workers, said that the workers accept this decision, but that it's not a sufficient solution.
Lemaire said that the government will build four more correctional facilities in Quebec, but the construction does not begin until 2012.
This will be the first time the jail housed any men since former Hells Angels boss, Maurice (Mom) Boucher, was held there almost 10 years ago.
The ministry relased a report stating that 11 of 18 provincial prisons are overpopulated, and Riviere-des Prairies detention centre is the worst. It is 94 prisoners over capacity."

More women arrested as drug mules -  Singapore News - XinMSN News

More women arrested as drug mules -  Singapore News - XinMSN News: "15 women from Singapore were arrested last year for drug offences linked to West African syndicates. Three women were arrested for such offences in 2008.
MediaCorp spoke to one drug mule who managed to save herself in the nick of time.
Joanne, not her real name, got to know a man by the name of Hassan on tagged.com.
Joanne who is in her mid 30’s said a few months into their online relationship, Hassan asked her to bring some documents for him into China.
She met someone in Kuala Lumpur to collect the documents.
Joanne took the envelope to China but passed it to someone else as Hassan didn’t turn up.
Hassan asked her to carry some documents to China again.
She was alerted to her unusually heavy leather suitcase by a taxi driver who was ferrying her to the KL airport.
The taxi driver told her there was something suspicious about the suitcase.
She discovered a small package wrapped with black tape.
At that point, Joanne was overcome with fear as she suspected it could be drugs.
She left the suitcase in a hotel and made her way back to Singapore where she informed the police.
MediaCorp understands the Singapore and Malaysia police launched a joint operation to seize the drugs in the suitcase.
She said: 'I am lucky that I’m still alive. I hate him and I am angry with his lies and I don’t trust people so easily anymore.'"

Cocaine highway into R.I. a tempting route for police | Rhode Island news | projo.com | The Providence Journal

Cocaine highway into R.I. a tempting route for police | Rhode Island news | projo.com | The Providence Journal: "Brayanth A. Fernandez, 36, who lived in the apartment, was caught with more than four kilograms of cocaine and more than $96,000, according to the police, and he was charged with drug offenses in federal court.
Initiative and diligence make for successful prosecutions in Rhode Island’s war on drugs, the police say. And sometimes, they admit, luck plays a role.
Given Rhode Islanders’ large appetite for cocaine and other illicit drugs, and the ability of international distribution networks to keep the market well-stocked, it seems to be a war without end.
The conflict regained public attention in March with the arrest of three Providence police officers on drug charges.
In a joint state police/FBI investigation called Operation Deception, Detective Joseph A. Colanduono, Sgt. Stephen T. Gonsalves and Patrolman Robert J. Hamlin Jr. were charged with participation in a large-scale cocaine ring allegedly operated by Albert B. Hamlin, the patrolman’s younger brother. The state police also said Gonsalves tried to buy cocaine.
Four more officers under suspicion in the case were placed on restricted duty.
The Providence Police Department has been alive with rumors as officers cringe at the possibility that even more of their colleagues have gone rogue. The state police have charged seven people so far in the investigation, including Albert Hamlin and the three officers, and state police Supt. Brendan P. Doherty has said that other officers are under investigation."

The Press Association: Taxi driver 'died after drinking cocaine-laced rum'

The Press Association: Taxi driver 'died after drinking cocaine-laced rum': "north London man given a bottle of rum as a gift died after he added a dash to his Guinness - unaware that the alcohol contained pure liquid cocaine allegedly smuggled into Britain, a court has heard.
Lascell Malcolm, 63, collapsed with a heart attack after drinking from the bottle, which was one of five smuggled into the country, each containing around 250g (8.8oz) of the Class A drug.
The unwitting father-of-two accepted the gift from an equally unsuspecting friend, Antoinette Corlis, after he collected her from Gatwick Airport, jurors were told.
Neither knew that Ms Corlis, who had flown back from a holiday in St Lucia, had been used as a drugs mule by Martin Newman, prosecutors said. Croydon Crown Court heard how Newman, 50, met Ms Corlis on the island where he was born and had asked her - along with another friend, Michael Lawrence - to carry some Bounty rum back to Britain.
Jurors heard that Newman approached the pair on May 24 last year, while they were waiting to check in. He claimed he had exceeded his baggage allowance and needed help transporting the drink. Mr Lawrence took two bottles in a yellow Veuve Clicquot box, agreeing to give them back on landing.
But the plan went awry when Newman was held up by Customs officers in London and Mr Lawrence, who was due to catch a connecting flight to Switzerland, had to depart. He took one bottle with him and handed the second to Ms Corlis, who was collected by taxi driver Mr Malcolm.
Mr Malcolm, who gave her a lift home, refused to accept payment. To thank him, Ms Corlis gave him what she believed to be a bottle of rum. Mr Malcolm died the next day from a heart attack caused by cocaine poisoning."
