The Islamic State terror organization’s occupation of the Iraqi city of Ramadi ended in 2015 but the extremist group left behind a poisonous legacy in the form of the amphetamine-based stimulant Captagon, the so-called jihadists’ drug.

Captagon, a brand name for fenethylline hydrochloride, was once prescribed to treat ailments like depression and hyperactivity until it was widely banned in the 1980s. EFE
