Heroin production in Afghanistan has tripled in three years

50
In Moscow, experts from the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences presented an analytical work "Afghanistan: a heroin empire".


At the ceremony of presenting the open part of the work, Nikolay Plotnikov, head of the Center for Scientific and Analytical Information of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said that over the period from 2015 to 2017, opium production in Afghanistan increased almost three times - from 3 300 tons to 9 000 tons

Heroin production in Afghanistan has tripled in three years


For three years, the area under opium poppy has almost doubled - from 184 thousand hectares in 2015 to 328 thousand hectares in 2017, experts write. According to their estimates, the use of genetically modified opium poppy seeds has increased the "yield" from 18,3 kg from one hectare in 2015 year to 27,3 kg in 2017 year.

Plotnikov recalled that heroin is currently produced in 50 countries, two thirds of the total production is in Afghanistan, in which approximately 500 drug laboratories operate.

The foundations for its production "were laid in 80s by American and Pakistani intelligence services. The Taliban controls 85% of the territory of Afghanistan where the opium poppy grows. In 2017, the 60% of the movement's budget was provided by the drug trade
- He said.

An expert who personally participated in operations against drug carriers on the border of Tajikistan and Afghanistan recalled that in 2001, when the United States launched a military operation against the Taliban, 180 tons of heroin were produced in Afghanistan, 2017 tons in 9, Interfax reports

    I think this is a direct fact that without serious companies such as the same Mansantha would not have done.
    The CIA and the Pentagon have such a normal business. How much money do they have on this?

    Here is the life-giving stream of democracy - how agriculture rose, though it is only one of the branches, but the main one for this democracy. Bullshit, that there is nothing, puffed or fucked up and is already happy and you don’t need anything, nothing interests you and nothing bothers. And most importantly, the question is not whether this same “democracy” has really gone wild ..... And so the productivity of the fields will only increase

    Due to the sharp increase in the production of opium poppy, the Pentagon felt a shortage in the number of contingents protecting the "crop", and therefore Washington decided to increase the contingent.
    Interestingly, in the US military budget laid the development and production of armored vehicles for poppy harvesting? After all, production is growing at such a pace that soon Afghan slaves will not be profitable to use. Is it also interesting that they upgraded military transport aircraft to spray pesticides or herbicides? Or are they producing an environmentally friendly product so that the US Sanitary Control does not reject?
    But seriously, why would these Amer’s tricks right at the UN General Assembly not make a claim to the organization of drug trafficking in huge volumes ...

    I didn’t understand something, they used to say that the Taliban (before the US invasion) immediately cut off their head for drugs, but here
    The Taliban control 85% of Afghanistan, where opium poppy grows. In 2017, 60% of the traffic budget was provided by the drug trade
    It is clear that the Americans are protecting the production of heroin. So who to believe?

    Americans strictly adhere to the theory of overpopulation of the planet and systematically destroy it. This process is not at all fast and has been stepped on several sides. This includes love for all kinds of perverts, instills tolerance, of course GMOs, wars and the spread of drugs. It should be noted that where drugs are produced, Americans are everywhere.

      Yes, GMOs are everywhere. Eat him, pah, and no control is being conducted. All sorts of "supervision", so as not to poison at all and the population was calm - like watching us and taking care of us. How profitable it is to make money with us, so it will be.
      We would have to create and modify our own office in our opium poppy so that it would die out and not grow on a local scale. Hop - and there’s no poppy in Afghanistan at all ... What will mattress do then ???

    Against this background, the excuse of mattresses looks very interesting that if you burn poppy crops from Afghan peasants, they have nothing to live on and they go to the Taliban.
    I wonder who is still to blame - the Taliban or mattresses?

    No, this organization is far from the only one in the world.

    Personally, I have huge doubts that modified samples were used. It is corny not profitable. Such work is very expensive, and the Afghan “farmers” are very poor people, heroin costs a penny, the high cost of this drug is determined by the relative complexity of smuggling (according to a number of sources, the final cost increases by thousands of percent). For example. In the final substance (sold to the consumer), the main price is the filler for heroin (the so-called inert fillers), and not heroin itself.
