Russia: Photos of a Drug Addict's Regress

LJ-user Roizman, Yekaterinburg political and anti-drug activist, posts pictures of Vika Zavalina, a drug addict. The series of pictures taken from 2004 to 2010 shows a shocking regress in the young woman's appearance. The post, which ends with Roizman's conclusion that compulsory drug treatment should be legally introduced, has gathered about 500 comments in just one day.
