Hemp is a versatile plant. It's used for making fiber ropes, fabrics, paper and oil. However, it's mostly known as a raw material for drug production. And though it grows in all Central Asian states, Kazakhstan (or rather its Shu valley) seems to be the most notorious place in this respect.
This man is the terror of all Shu criminals. He's name is Bolatbek and he's the Head of the department that combats drug trafficking in the city of Shu.
Taking into account the specific features of this work, even men on duty are always in full combat readiness.
It's difficult to imagine a combating drug trafficking organization without canine units. Specially trained search dogs are the most effective means of detecting drugs. A German Shepherd dog named Pirate is able to search for drugs, weapons and even catch criminals.
Today, the canine unit is going to comb a railroad area where a large concentration of wild hemp grows. The group consists of two police agents, a dog expert and Pirate.
To be able to move on rough terrain, the department has two cars - the Niva and the UAZ. But the policemen complain that they need at least a cross-country vehicle to successfully operate in such conditions.
