I’ve used paco since I was thirty. You think its one day, but it actually is three, four days - you lose from your life.

The Madres Contra el Paco have formed to combat Paco, a highly addictive and destructive drug that has been tearing through the poorest parts of Buenos Aires. The United Nations reported that Paco use in Argentina rose by 200% between 2005 and 2007; other agencies estimated a 500% increase.
