Jagmohan garg highlights Drug in the times of demonetisation: Chocolate spiked opium is cashless city’s new high
Drug suppliers in the city have doped out a way to stay afloat and keep clients on a high amid a cash crunch triggered by the government’s demonetisation drive. They are mixing grains of chocolate malt drinks into opium to cut costs and provide patrons a fresh flavour with Christmas and New Year celebrations just round the corner.
Sources say a colour resemblance allows peddlers to combine the two products apart from the fact that both contain sugar and gum. They can sell it for Rs 60,000-1 lakh a kilogram. Investigation agencies in the national capital region (NCR) say this is not the first time that drug addicts are experimenting with fusion of high-end drugs and eatables. Sources say youngsters frequently want to try something new and fresh concoctions often debut near the end of the year when drug supply and consumption go up.
