    Note: This is not some pro-western article or right-wing article. This is the Asian Times, they are hardly pro-western or right-winged! Basically its showing the Alamdouchebag has basically set Iran back a few 100 years. There drug addiction and prostitution problems dwarfs America's yet we have a much more tolerant system for both prostitution and drug addiction not to mention 4x the population. This is eye-opening!

    Cool.......maybe this means that eventually islam will be nothing more than a memory of a bad dream.

    Not sure that will happen, but I find it interesting that in such a repressive regime the world's oldest profession is dwarfing Americans and drug use is also dwarfing Americas, but then again with the largest herion producer in the world (Afghanistan) next door, its not that surprising!

    About 2-3 years ago, in Iraq, the largest selling products in their markets (they call 'em souks), was cold medication like Robitussin, as well as Viagra.

    They were tripping on cough medicine and having sex.

    Interesting eh? Especially for a good muslim country.

    Oh so harsh laws don't work? Can we decriminalize drugs now so we can keep rapists behind bars longer?

    Women being sold into sex against their will is what's disgusting. I don't know if teenagers being sold into sex slavery is the same as, "women selling themselves." They're being sold by somebody else who claims to own them. The article also mentioned women using it as a way to gain upward mobility. If that's what they freely chose then good for them. Be better if it was regulated to monitor STDs and such, though.
