Joining the Anti-Drug Campaign

While in some places in Amman they encourage you not to experiment with drugs, in other places they are a bit more forceful with their wording:

In Saudi Arabia, they will help you get there. I found this border control card in my in flight magazine on the way back from Egypt to Amman. It reads, "Death for Drug Trafficker." I'm not sure the message could be any more clear.

It's funny much as Arabs dislike drugs, they don't consider cigarettes to fall in the drug category. Almost everyone here smokes -- way more than in America. I wonder what they'll do here when they find out that nicotine is also an addictive drug? Posted by Picasa
