    • QUOTE: He saw me taste the drug. “Don't do that. That stuff is very bad for you," he says. “Haven't you ever been tempted to try it?" I want to know. “I know that if I start using it, I'll get addicted and my future will be destroyed. The people who use it - I've seen them in the cities lying down, their family life is destroyed, their children don't go to school," he tells me. “But you're helping produce the stuff. Don't you feel guilty?" I ask. I'm not surprised by his answer. “I've got no choice," he says. “I've got no job and you get good money with the opium."
