Drugs HS returned to Lahti, whose drug situation was described as catastrophic three years ago: “I would say the problem has even worsened,” says the director in charge of the substance abuse clinic.

Three years ago, Lahti gained a reputation as the amphetamine capital of Finland. HS visited the city after three years and asked what the drug situation looks like now.

“From here the playground was removed. Now the farm seems to have benches and a box for drug injectors, ”the responsible director of the substance abuse clinic Avominen Pasi Tuomaila says in Lahti Church Park.

We continue our journey towards the center of Lahti to see the places where, according to Tuomaila, the city’s drug problem is most clearly visible in the street scene.
