Brazil's most populous state, Sao Paulo, starts forcibly committing adult crack addicts to rehabilitation centers in an effort to reduce the growing use of the drug.
The popularity of the drug has been on the rise in recent years. As a result, addicts have occupied open-air "crack lands" in large cities such as Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

Brazil is currently the world's largest consumer of cocaine and its crack derivatives.
