Gujarat, with a population of over 60 million people and the fastest growing economy in India, not surprisingly has a drug problem. Unfortunately, drugs such as ephedrine, the base of methamphetamine are produced and sent to other countries. (Times of India, 2010) Gujarat is also a major producer of mandrax. Of course, Gujarat not only produces drugs but has a growing population of drug and alcohol addicts. Fortunately there are many qualified treatment centres to help.
