Shouldn't we be told about who ran the opium trade and the Opium War with China. The Sassoon family "Rothschilds of the East"and all? (talk) 04:10, 23 January 2012 (UTC)Just Curious

missing info more recent history of opium dens[edit]

There needs to more info on the demise of opium dens and any info on current existence of any opium dens in the modern era. Do they still exists anywhere these days? --Cab88 (talk) 03:28, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

This seems rather backwards. Are you asking for the article to discuss the question of whether they exist in the absence of any sources? The article cannot say one way or the other without a source to back up the claim. ---RepublicanJacobiteThe'FortyFive' 03:44, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

London section[edit]

I personally think this section of the article should be re-written in a formal, more objective way. Note: "although whether they themselves took up the "pipe" has remained undisclosed" could be said differently. In addition, both Dickens and Arthur Conan Doyle are mentioned. Means Oscar Wilde could be mentioned too as he references Opium Den's in The Picture of Dorian Gray. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:59, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
