Yeah Euphoria is subjective to some degree. I agree re Marijuana and alcohol - to be honest I don't get it why people like them so much. Oh well to each their own .
Hello bro, its my pleasure to tell u what i know. Although I work in china, I often fly back to Iran in order to see my grandparents and friends. Let start off by telling u about Opium abuse in my homeland.
As I said in earlier posts, Opium still remains the most popular drug in Iran. A high-quality opium in Iran costs almost (less than) $1 per gram. The "strogest" type of Opium is called "Shireh" (شیره تریاک). U might not find many "English" articles about iton internet but basically, Shireh is a very strong type of opium produced by refining raw opium, known locally as Taryak, in boiling water, heating and filtering to remove insoluble materials. It mean: If u have opium, U can make it two times stronger by turning it into "Shireh"
On the search bar of youtube, If u type the name of this substance in persian language (شیره تریاک) , you might even find some tutorial videos. The method sounds even easier than the way I described and can be done in minutes at any Small/big kitchen.
There are two method of using opium: smoking and taking the stuff orally. When I am in iran, I buy the stuff and take it orally.
Just a simple advice: No matter what u use, some substances can be taken orally so i see no reason to waste it by smoking method .
Possession of less than 1 gram of opium is legal in iran and the link below is what Erowid says about the penalty of using any illegal drug (including alcohol) in iran.

After all, there is a question that has made my mind busy:
"why don't you buy opium seeds and plan your own one? I doubt if opium seeds are ilegal in any country"
You just have to learn it.
In Iran, Hash is more popular and cheaper than MJ because MJ in iran are coming from other countries Although many of my friends would rather plant and grow their own Plant. I used to consume hash orally as it was once the most popular method of using.
I swear I can't even remember the last time I consumed any THC-containing stuff. Later I will tell you why I hate psychedelics..
There are only two ways to get your hands on alcohol in iran
1. Making your own alcoholic drinks (moonshine or sugar-wash)
2. Buying them from christian/armenian communities in some cities, including the capital.
The only legal and safest way to consume alcohol is drinking at home or personal places. Plus I've never seen or heard any "foreigner" getting busted for drinking alcohol in Iran. But no misunderstanding plz, I don't support such unfair restriction. They should legalize alcohol and other drugs althou i know it wont happen.
Im not interested in alcohol a lot, I would accept to drink only few shots when it is offered at special events such as wedding receptions, chinese festivals and so on. Alcohol never gave me joy and calmness. The more I drink, the worst I feel. When I'm drunk, I feel nothing but an annoying vertigo. Stomachache is the second side effect of this "non-recreational" Psychoactive. Forgive me plz. I don't mean to be too judgmental and my hatred towards alcohol is something "personal". I don't even suggest my friend to replace alcohol with a better substance. If there's a specific way to enjoy alcohol, I would even pay money to learn it.
Prescribed meds in Iran
Not all, but most of pharmacies would give u what "they have" including all types of benzo but there's always a limit. They can't offer u more than one or two boxes. You have to wait for few days to get some more.
