I recently watched an episode of CSI:NY and a major plot point was that sex slaves were forced to take Heroin, presumably to make them more compliant and to cause an addiction that prevents them from leaving.
Is there any truth behind this? Are victims of human trafficking commonly forced onto addictive drugs?
At least one website supports this:
In some cases, a prostitute will be forced by a pimp or other person to take drugs to ensure that they do as they are told and have sex with people. This is particularly true in the case of young people and children.
But I didn't see a source for the claim.
