Drug dealers often mix narcotics with cheap highly toxic materials like lead to increase their weight and earn more money, said Colonel Qolamreza Nejabat, Zabol police chief. “Lead poisoning occurs when the chemical builds up in the body. It is a serious condition and can be fatal,” IRNA quoted him as saying. He also said that in the first three months of the current year that started in March, over 365 kgs of illicit drugs were seized in Zabol County in Sistan-Baluchestan Province and 316 smugglers were arrested.
