Why is law different for expat and Emirati addicts?
I thought my eyes were deceiving me when I read the front page on Wednesday! A drug-addicted Emirati should go to rehab but an expat automatically goes to jail?! The piece went on to say that drug addiction is an illness which should be treated as such... unless you’re an expat. What about people who made Dubai their home for 30 years but succumbed to drugs? Do they not deserve the same help as the locals? Can someone please explain to me why the law should be any different? I don’t condone drug taking and have never taken drugs of any kind in my entire life but I just don’t understand this! Perplexed Dubai reason areas are now named on brown road signs and these are well after the main signage. In most countries brown signs are only for directing to commercial areas like shopping areas and leisure facilities etc and not suburbs or residential areas. Direct D Dubai
