ZURICH, Switzerland — Zurich consistently ranks one of the best places to live in the world. But Switzerland’s financial capital was not always so spiffy clean.
In the early 1990s, this city of 400,000 was notorious for having Europe’s biggest open drug scene. And we’re talking hard drugs, like heroin.
These days, new heroin addicts are rare in Switzerland, while other countries like the United States and Australia are witnessing a devastating heroin comeback.
