Heroin contaminated with anthrax

BBC News is  mystified by the outbreak of anthrax among heroin users. The best story they came up with on PM today was that the heroin was transported from Afghanistan in infected goat-skins.

Gary Lewis, who is much closer to the streets than the average BBC journalist, has a more plausible explanation: that the drug is cut, close to source, with infected bonemeal.
