Drug Facts

70% of violent crime is committed by people who are intoxicated with either alcohol or drugs.

An estimated 16.6 million persons age 12 or older were classified with dependence on or abuse of either alcohol or illicit drugs in 2001 (7.3 percent of the population).

90% of property crimes and muggings are drug related.

Physical addiction is characterized by the presence of tolerance (needing more and more of the drug to achieve the same effect).

Major police operation ends in drugs haul.

Police in Medway,England believe they have effectively taken out a suspected major drugs network.

The covert operation, which began more than nine months ago, targeted a specific network, believed to supply heroin and crack cocaine.

It culminated with the arrest of 13 people, with around five further arrests planned for the near future.

Calvin Smith, 24, of White Road, Chatham,England and Zouhir Ben-Kmayal, 27, of Willow Road, Strood,England have been charged with conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

Two brothers who were working within the network were also charged with conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and have been remanded in custody.

During the operation around £20,000 was seized by officers and drugs with an estimated street value of £6,000 were also confiscated.

Det Sgt Adam Marshall said, 'The operation required a huge amount of hard work and dedication from the officers involved.

"We have been able to take a large quantity of drugs off the streets and help to make Medway a safer place to live and work."
