Heroin Trafficking through Pakistan

in Substance Abuse

In 2011, between 210 tons to 240 tons of Afghan heroin was smuggled though Pakistan on its way to the global drug market. The amount of heroin that was moved through Pakistan represented 35 to 40 percent of the total heroin produced in Afghanistan in 2011, and was worth between $25 and $30 Billion.

(Additional heroin facts and statistics.)

Around 25 percent of Afghan heroin was smuggled though Northern routes on its way to Russia.

(How much does heroin cost per gram?)
