Opium glut in Hamid Karzai’s Afghanistan

Europe is about to be inundated by a tidal wave of cheap heroin from Afghanistan, which will reach the cities of the Old Continent via Turkey and Albania.

Since the Taleban regime was ousted and the US-backed regime of Hamid Karzai was installed in Kabul, opium production has risen by one thousand, five hundred tonnes. In one year.

Opium poppy cultivation has increased an estimated 1,400 times in the Afghanistan of Hamid Karzai, according to figures presented at the Second European Conference on Drugs Trafficking, on Thursday, in Paris, by Drugscope, the British Drugs Observatory, whose director, Roger Howard, declared that the news is “extremely worrying”.

In October 2001, the UN Drug Control Programme released figures which indicated that in areas controlled by the Northern Alliance, opium production was rising, after the Taleban had practically eliminated the crop, considering it “anti-Islamic”.
