The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

The blog is written by a team, who may or may not be JPs, but all of whom are interested in the Magistrates' Courts.

Genuine Question

We all know that Islam forbids the drinking of alcohol. Can anyone tell me what the Islamic teaching is on the use of heroin?
The question occurred to me because Afghanistan, which has many devout Muslims, presumably bans alcohol while being the centre of the heroin trade.
