    Apparently, even NATO recognizes who's (actually) supporting who. :rolleyes:

    Since opiates have several legitimate uses and eradicating the crops would undermine a source of income for the locals and ultimately our support from locals, perhaps pharmaceutical companies could buy the opium poppies instead of the drug traffickers in the short term and farmers could be helped to move on to other crops that would actually help the country and its economy (food crops come immediately to mind). This would be a win-win situation for everyone except drug-traffickers and terrorists.

    That's been suggested, before, but.....the Big Pharmas suggest they're getting all-they-need.....and, the DEA $till has some Divine Right to job-$ecurity.

    Hmmm... perhaps it could be handled as rolling from tobacco to other crops was in the US?

    I'm sure the price-per-kilo is what's complicating the situation.
