The Narconon drug rehab program came across an article within Canadian media talking about a drug called Doda. Although this drug has been around for sometime, it has just recently become popular amongst certain populations in Ontario, Canada. The drug is primarily poppy husks or seeds coming from the poppy plant, which is ground up into a fine powder. Local doctors in Ontario say users typically are blue-collar workers who drive trucks, taxis, and work long shifts at factories. The opiates in the drug cause the individual to feel more alert, but doctors warn a physical dependency can and will still develop for the drug.
Local police have discovered the users of this drug have been acquiring it at local meat shops, which have been receiving large quantities of the poppy plant from Afghanistan and Arizona, USA. Police have already made arrests and charged one individual for trafficking and possession. Upon seizing the substance and running tests, it was indicated that the Doda tested positive for opiates codeine and morphine, making this drug an illegal substance.
The Narconon rehab program is warning people to watch out for this particular opiate drug, because it will cause the same physical and psychological dependencies as other opiates.
