Terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and Hizballah are sustained by money from illicit drugs according to a leading US expert on narco-terrorism.
The US State Department has identified at least 12 other terrorist groups as dealing in illicit drugs as a source of funds.
Bin Laden's al-Qaeda drug trafficking business commenced in the mid 1980's in Afghanistan, the worlds largest producer of heroin.
As well as providing funds for terrorism, a Jihad by drugs undermines economically advanced countries by creating a public health crisis.
The use of illicit drug trades was supported by a religious edict (fatwa) claiming that- "if we cannot kill them (Western democracies) by guns we will with drugs", according to US government officials
Afghanistan under the Taliban, allowed terrorist groups to cultivate up to 70% of the opium in Northern Afghanistan according to Interpol.
Heroin controlled by terrorists groups is trafficked all over the world.

Harm minimization policies that maintain addicts using heroin creates a market providing drug money for terrorist groups.
In particular, injecting rooms, heroin maintenance programs, syringe distribution and prescription heroin sustains the use of heroin.
Australia has a responsibility to reduce demand for illicit drugs thereby starving terrorist groups of funds.
The push for injecting rooms is really about legalizing all mind-altering drugs.
All illegal drugs like heroin, LSD, cocaine, amphetamines, marijuana, ecstasy, speed, are dangerous and are mind altering.
The chairman of the Bracks government's drug committee at a meeting on 28 May 2000 confirmed his view in the Australian 31/7/96, "In the long run, I believe removing the criminal penalties is the only way of overcoming the very dangerous and damaging illicit trade..."
This is the real reason behind legalized injecting rooms.
They have legalized syringe distribution, now they want to legalize injecting rooms, then they will want to legalize free heroin to addicts, which normalizes drug use.
Once mind altering drug use is normalized they argue for legalization - that's the real plan.
The process of normalization of all mind-altering drugs has been underway in Australia for the past 15 years this is why drug use and drug deaths have increased.
Government reports show heroin deaths in Victoria have skyrocketed -
The Government's drug experts expect heroin deaths in Victoria to be 496 in 2005.
The current policy of normalization of mind-altering drugs is a massive failure
Less addicts not more
Don't legalize drug pushing
Less crime not more
Taxes for injecting rooms must be used to get addicts' drug free
More detoxification & effective rehabilitation programs
Prisons & youth centers must get addicts' drug free
Harm minimization policies will NOT reduce heroin deaths because -

ADDICTS MUST BE ORDERED INTO DETOXIFICATION & REHABILITATION
A heroin prescription program for cronic addicts in Switzerland between 1994 and 2000 is a massive failure.
The program maintained the addicts on prescription heroin.
Of the 2166 addicts that used the program almost half (1031 addicts) left for the following reasons -
The Swiss government claims that prescription heroin is "treatment".
The Swiss government keeps its most vunerable citizens addicted rather than helping them to get drug free.
52% of the cronic addicts that remained in the program are maintained in their heroin addiction with the consequent harmful health effects.
Of the 48% of those that left the program most are still addicted.

MOST ADDICTS IN THE SWISS PROGRAM NEVER GOT DRUG FREE
A heroin trial will not reduce drug deaths nor get addicts drug free because -
