Preparing for Afghanistan cash crop

This is down to the efficient management of the CIA using the US troops to protect the crop. And then the CIA sell it to the people in the USA who then get arrested for using it.

Ooh, I can hear the screech of car tyres outside and lots of shouting ... must go ... door bell has just rung ....

That wasn't the doorbell, it was just your tinfoil hat tinging as you moved.

These subsistance farmers need to make a living somehow and it must be paying more than apples and pomegranates. It would be very unwise to remove that source of income without providing an alternative that brought in the same or more.

Agggh someone shoot me - I am in agreement with Finks again.

However the CIA have form from Cambodia and Laos during the Vietnam time so know how to manage the situation to their benefit. I also note that the Russian's aren't too chuffed that a lot of this produce is ending up on their streets.
 
Ah, the law of unintended consequences is alive and well;

The Guardian

Eradication programmes that do not provide farmers with benefits such as healthcare and education, and support growing other crops will just push the Taliban or other insurgent groups that do tolerate or encourage poppy production

Considering that this was not the primary objective;

The rapid growth of poppy farming as western troops head home reflects particularly badly on Britain, which was designated "lead nation" for counter-narcotics work over a decade ago

I wonder which democratically elected vote waster signed up to that one
