ISIS and amphetamines
The US-led international coalition against ISIS recently destroyed a large drug cache seized from the group. The seizure included over 300,000 Captagon pills, a highly addictive amphetamine that works to keep users awake and dull pain. The drug has called the “Jihadi pill” by some because of its popularity among ISIS fighters. It appears that the drug was both consumed and exported by the group, although the extent of consumption and export are unknown.
