The amanuensis of 'Abdul-Baha referring to Opium & Intoxication writes that :
“Alcohol is used very much indeed among the Baha'is, and opium also is used, but not so much [as alcohol].”
Avireh says that the Baha'is use more alcohol than any other people, and that even the sons-in-law of 'Abbas Effendi used to come to the meetings in Haifa intoxicated. It was the Baha'is in Kirman who induced Dr. Browne to smoke opium and almost succeeded in getting him addicted to it.

One more example of Unique Baha'i Architecture !

Original : Shazdeh Garden (Iran) was built originally for Mohammad Hasan Khan Qajar Sardari Iravani ca.1850 and was extended ca.1870 by Abdolhamid Mirza Naserodollehand during the eleven years of his governorship in the Qajar dynasty. The construction was left unfinished, due to the death of Abdolhamid Mirza in the early 1890s. (Wikipedia)

Copy : Baha'i Terraces (Israel), Fariborz Sahba began work in 1987 designing the gardens and oversaw construction. The terraces were opened to the public in June 2001. www.sahbaarchitect.com
