BBC News – ‘Hard drugs found’ on Greenpeace ship seized by Russia

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-24461644

Excerpt: Russian investigators say they have found what appear to be hard drugs on board the Greenpeace ship seized during a protest in the Arctic last month.

“During a search of the ship, drugs (apparently poppy straw and morphine) were confiscated,” Russia’s Investigative Committee said.

Poppy straw, or raw opium, can be used to produce morphine or heroin.

Greenpeace said in a statement that any suggestion of illegal drugs being found was a “smear”.

“We can only assume the Russian authorities are referring to the medical supplies that our ships are obliged to carry under maritime law,” it said.
