Drug squads declare victory in war on heroin as street supplies plunge

Due to the tremendous efforts put in by the Serious and Organised Crime Agency (Soca) and Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency, two drug regulating agencies, it has been seen that the level of heroin found on the streets of UK has gone down.

This has double benefits because while it has in a way reduced the demand it has also raised the price of drugs found on the street, forcing many to stay away from it. And most prominent in the efforts are the total number of seizures made by the two agencies.

Both of them in their statements have claimed that the so-called 'upstream' trafficking operations in UK have gone down as the supply has been reduced at source.

What also acted in advantage for these agencies is that poppy crops in Afghanistan were attacked by disease.

That being the case, the production of opium was reduced at 50 per cent and so was the yield.
