Obeid and his friend Abdul inject themselves with heroin in a cemetery of Herat city. They started using heroin in Iran before being deported by the Iranian government because they were illegal. Both young men say they are 18, but many under-age addicts lie about their age in order to be put in an adult jail where they can continue using drugs. In teenager jails, the inmates are forced to quit and smuggling heroin into the jail is very difficult. (image by Philip Poupin)
