The number of Czechs addicted to the home made drug pervitin –or crystal methamphetamine – has seen a steep rise in the past decade, according to National Anti-Drug Centre head Viktor Mravčík.
While ten years ago some 25 thousand young Czechs were addicted to pervitin, now their number has risen to 35 thousand.
Addiction to pervitin is the second most widespread addiction doctors are treating, immediately after alcohol.
