“Statistics show that Iran is responsible for more than 90% of the world’s narcotics discoveries,” says Iranian Official
Faking the discovery of drugs is one of the police force’s excuses for further repression of the youths in order to intimidate them and demonstrate control over them.
Every day, one of the oppressive police officers of the Iranian regime uses the opportunity to warn the people, particularly the youth, about the dangers of protesting. Iran is currently in the midst of a new era of rising protests, sparked by the regime’s decision to raise the price of the most basic goods.
Faking the discovery of drugs is one of the police force’s excuses for further repression of the youths in order to intimidate them and demonstrate control over them. “This year, the State Security Force Command complex has discovered more than 105 tons of different types of drugs,” Ghasem Rezaei, the deputy commander of FARAJA (The Farsi acronym for State Security Force Command), said, revealing the regime’s deplorable situation inflicted on the Iranian people.
This number of narcotics is a tragedy that has turned Iran into hell, but it is also a disgraceful scandal for a regime that has laid the groundwork for dragging people into the death vortex.

Due to the current climate in Iranian society, some young people seek refuge in drugs, which are widely distributed by the regime’s brokers in the cities.
With a variety of drugs readily available across Iran’s cities, unemployed, talented, and energetic youths are less likely to attend anti-regime protest rallies. Furthermore, by seizing control of the lucrative drug market, the regime stands to reap a slew of benefits.
The Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), which is the main smuggler of drugs into Russia and Europe, benefits greatly from this. Following the imposition of US sanctions, the regime is attempting to make money and avoid the sanctions, with drug and arms trafficking being two of the most important sources of illicit income for this organization.
The regime, on the other hand, is using this tactic to put on a hollow show of power by reporting on fake drug discoveries, while also portraying these drug busts as a “catastrophe” and “scandal.”
“Statistics show that Iran is responsible for more than 90% of the world’s narcotics discoveries,” Rezaei said.
This is unsurprising given that the Iranian people are up against a regime that seeks to maintain power through destruction and repression. People were killed in recent protests in Lorestan and Khuzestan, demonstrating that the regime can never survive without torturing, killing, starving, and applying the most severe pressure on the people.
“The age of addiction has fallen below 18 years,” according to IRNA, thanks to the regime’s policies.
“More than two weeks after the publication of this news, which the official custodians of this issue (Anti-Narcotics Headquarters) did not deny,” IRNA added.
Because the reported age of addiction has been lowered to under 18, some high school seniors in their final years of education will likely face consequences that will have a significant impact on their future. It will not only have significant economic and psychological costs and consequences, but it will also put a significant strain on society.
