Minister Shehryar Afridi Claimed That 75% Girls In Islamabad Do “Ice” And People Are Asking What He Smoked

Plot twist: Heisenberg didn’t die, he just moved to Islamabad to sell crystal meth. 

Young people use drugs. That is an undisputed fact globally. While this may be true, the statistics for drug usage amongst the youth vary from country to country. So when last night, a distraught Interior Minister Shehryar Afridi addressed the media about crystal meth usage among students in Islamabad, a lot of the figures didn’t really seem… genuine.

The Minister of State for Interior, claimed, that in the ‘top tier’ schools of Islamabad, he had found that 75% girls and 45% boys were using crystal meth.


Now if true, this is an astounding statistic and highly concerning.


But considering that he provided no information on how exactly he came to this figure, people were a little skeptical of this information.

When the interior minister talks about ICE WHILE ON ICE CREAM 😀 😂 75% is this guy for real? Whats the study where is…

^ And just saying, this guy scored 22 A’s in his A-Levels so he obviously knows what he’s talking about.

I mean, just, that can’t be right.

The Minister further lamented that parents were completely oblivious to the entire situation. That the crystal meth was being cleverly disguised by drug dealers to seem like candy. He could not stress enough about what an epidemic crystal meth had become in the country’s capital.


And of course, some people agreed that the situation was alarming, even if the Minister’s stats were a little off.

And honestly, even if a single student is using crystal meth, that is definitely a cause for concern. Crystal meth is completely chemical based and one of the most addictive and most dangerous drugs on the planet. And once addicted, the habit is extremely hard to kick, even with the right medical help.


Like always, there were a few people who thought they had the solution to the issue at hand. Legalize hash so students would opt for the ‘natural’ alternative.


Then there are those who are blaming the entire situation on Breaking Bad.

Let’s see what steps the government will now take to combat this situation. My hope is that good state subsidized rehabilitation centers will be made, because if students are indeed abusing crystal meth at the rate the Minister is claiming, then good rehabilitation centers are immediately needed to combat the situation and help those afflicted with addictions.

What do you think about these statistics? Let us know in the comments.
