When we examine the history of wars and crises that have hit the world, we see the phenomenon of drug abuse, which is often driven by the escape from the bitter reality of the users, or the huge profit in a fairly quick way for the drug dealers.
There is an unprecedented increase in drug dealing and drug abuse in areas controlled by Assad’s forces and SDF in Deir Ezor, which also indicates the ease of bringing and distributing this material.
First, it is necessary to distinguish between the types of drugs, they always come in the form of the first article “hashish” and the second drugs and painkillers under the name of drugs, for daily use and without a prescription, these forms take different types and prices.
In the search for prices of these types of drugs, we found that the material “hashish” is available significantly, and the price of weight varies from seller to another, as (Baalbekip) coming from Lebanon is the best and the price of more than 14 thousand pounds, and there are higher quality items price “The one kilogram (12.5 grams) is made of between 15 and 20 cigarettes, enough for one week, and often shared by several people who smoke them together.
As for grain prices, grain sales are currently outside pharmacies. The distributor of hashish also distributes narcotic pills and sells them by grain or circumstance. However, this does not mean that there are no pharmacists who sell them outside the prescription for double profits.
And the most famous species traded (Tramadol), officially sold about 200 Syrian pounds per pack, while the price of the circumstance containing 10 pills between 1500 and 3 thousand pounds, and the palatine and is described for psychiatric patients and officially sold 250 pounds, while the circumstance sold about 1500 pounds, In addition to Hikazol medicine and sold officially 200 pounds and on the black market by 3,000 pounds.
The trade of narcotic pills and cannabis is intensively active in the neighborhoods of Joura and Al-Qusour between elements of the Assad forces and militias in the area.
It appears that the aim of the drugs is to recruit as many civilians as possible and to attract children and adolescents, who prefer to volunteer within the national defense militia rather than conscription.
The security chaos in the areas controlled by Qusad and the spread of unemployment within it is one of the main reasons for the spread of this phenomenon.
The use of narcotic substances in the areas of control of his body has become worrisome to the people and the civilian population, especially in the absence of censorship by his father, the absence of censorship does not fall within the framework of negligence, but in the context of involvement in this crime.
There are some military figures with influence in SDF who are involved in the drug trafficking and sale process.
Drug traffickers in the cities and towns of Deir Ezzor move freely and protect some gangs and mafias. This is encouraged by the absence of legal prosecution of their promoters, especially since most of them belong to the Assad forces or military commanders.
