Drug lord delivers blunt Lebanon protest support

A week into daily demonstrations that have gone on into the early hours, the Lebanese may be in need of a pick me up — and the country’s most famous drug dealer offered just that Thursday. Nouh Zaiter, a hashish dealer on the run from Lebanese authorities, delivered a blunt message in support of anti-corruption protests that have crippled the country. The self-styled Lebanese Robin Hood released a video on a local news site calling on protesters in the eastern Baalbek region to demonstrate on Thursday evening.
