"An n Iranian scientist claimed this week that he had invented a radar system which can detect drug addicts from nearly a mile away, and measure the level of narcotics flooding their system.

According to the Iranian Mehr news agency, the system was designed to identify explosives and bodies buried under rubble, as well as alcohol and drugs.

Scientist Seyed Ali Hosseini told the news agency on Tuesday that the technology can locate drug addicts from 1,500 meters (0.9 miles away). He said the “radar tracker was designed and built to detect drugs, explosives, bodies alive and dead under the rubble, addictive drugs and alcoholic beverages.”

The system “can be applied by the police, border guards, security agents and during unexpected accidents and disasters,” he added.

The enterprising scientist offered a vague description of the mechanisms involved, saying “the transmitter part consists of radio waves and radio magnets emitting waves across the earth and stimulates elements’ molecular layer and releases their ions.” The receiver, meanwhile, “detects ions as well as the molecular layer, then transfers waves back to the target to detect their essence.” The system then projects the findings on a computer, “which includes the volume, weight and size of the traced elements,” he said.

Scientists from the Islamic Republic have in the past touted other improbable inventions. In April 2013, an Iranian businessman and scientist said he had successfully invented a time machine.

Ali Razeghi, 27, a Tehran-based scientist, businessman and serial inventor, claimed his “Aryayek Time Traveling Machine” can “predict five to eight years of the future life of any individual, with 98 percent accuracy,” according to a report in The Guardian.

Razeghi said that his device, which is about the size of a small computer, uses complex algorithms to “bring the future to you.” He said that governments can use his invention to “prepare itself for challenges that might destabilize it” but that a prototype won’t be launched currently because “the Chinese will steal the idea and produce it in millions overnight.”

Iran does have a huge drug problem that is said to dwarf anything in the U.S. Gee, I wonder if the people are not happy there? Apparently mosque attendance rate is at about 2%.

However, considering Iran executes drug users, this sounds like a really nasty way of reducing this segment of the Iranian population, or a great (but really STUPID) piece of propaganda into trying to stop drug addiction.

Well you have to hand it to the Iranian scientists, they should really be writing science fiction, but maybe like other things in Iran, that is taboo, so they just publish it as fact.

What else can we expect from Islamic totalitarian societies.....

He might be a closet homosexual himself.

"Ali Razeghi, 27, a Tehran-based scientist, businessman and serial inventor, claimed his “Aryayek Time Traveling Machine” can “predict five to eight years of the future life of any individual, with 98 percent accuracy,” according to a report in The Guardian."

So, a flood of requests about the state of the world leaders should ensue. . .

"An Iranian scientist claimed this week that he had invented a radar system which can detect drug addicts from nearly a mile away, and measure the level of narcotics flooding their system."

You know, it is crap like this that makes me wonder if they really have the capability to be a threat to anyone but themselves with technology. This comes straight out of the Flintstones not science. The very idea that a system could pinpoint a single "addict" from a mile away is ludicrous. What of all those other sources it claims it also can detect between it and the target? Such a system would lose its internal mind with all the input it would get on the way to a target a mile out. One pharmacy would blow it up. It is hard to take them seriously on any issue when they have "scientists" of this caliber.

Gene, I agree. I found it the claims so stupid and fantastical that it made me laugh aloud.

From what I have read and heard, the Iranian people are good people who are not very happy living under an Islamic totalitarian society. The Mullahs' henchmen can go and hurt women who don't have their hair covered appropriately and execute those who use drugs or homosexuals, but this just makes for a more repressive society, who will be more likely to turn to unIslamic forms of escapism, like more drugs.

Meanwhile the government is wholly incapable of changing itself. It has too big an agenda and after all Allah has blessed them.

No this is just some stooping-incredibly-low scare method. I hope the Iranian people won't take it seriously. They are generally pretty smart. Also they are not an Arab culture.

Sounds like a bull dust artist blowing his horn and expecting every fool to come running to see his latest folly. Now just imagine the evil injustice that could be perpetrated with such a idiotic farce of machine. It's scary any poor citizen could be detected and executed for taking drugs on the say so of some farce of a machine. Total lunacy. Thank you for post it is noted.

Yeah right sounds a bit like the Nigerian guy who claimed homosexuality was wrong using magnets or the guy who was selling fake bomb detectors that work on the principle of "electrostatic magnetic ion attraction" which didn't really stop those suicide bombers in Iraq. Sounds like he knows that if you can't blind them with science you can baffle them with bullshit.

so is this good news or bad news? reminds me of the salem witch hunts. seems to be yet another way iran's regime can persecute its own people. as to the inventor, if he thinks this invention will score him a get ou of jail free card, i'd say he's dreaming.
