U.S. officials John Nicarson acknowledged that illegal trade provided 60 % of the funds for Taliban. General Nicholson said that if the United States wants to defeat Taliban, it is best to start with Poppie field.

Although the United States invests $ 8.5 billion to help Afghanistan fight against the illegal anesthesia economy, Afghanistan is still the world’s largest opium producer and exporter. According to VOA, heroin produced in Afghanistan estimates about 80 %

Taliban leader Mara Manuer truthfully said, “I think most people know that poppy crops are really the motivation to provide us with all funds. Who has no real religious belief? We can only rely on poppies to bring profits by poppies to bring profits. And this money does not need to pay taxes. But obviously we also have a worry, that is, whether the soldiers will rely too much on popto anesthesia. “

The US $ 8.5 billion provided by the United States has entered the sea at the same way as the Afghan government. The money did not send it to the poppy growers to buy other seeds and other agricultural products, and did not even see any effective changes. The Afghan government has always been doing roots to remove poppy fields, but this year’s eradication action results are too ugly. In the past, a poppy field just eradicated here, and the planting area here next year will increase by 10 %. According to the news released by the Office of Afghan Drugs and Crime Problems this year, the Afghan Opium Data Report shows that this year’s planting area will increase 43 % from 2016, and the planting area of ​​poppy planting will increase to 201,000 hectares. At the same time, the average opium yield was 23.8 kilograms per hectare, an increase of 30 % over 2015. (18.3 kilograms per hectare before 2015, which may change the seeds of poppies.)


About 80273 hectares (accounting for 40 % of the country’s total) in Hillman in Afghanistan are still the country’s main poppy planting province. Followed by Badgis (35234 hectares), Kandaha (20475 hectares), Uruzhun (15503 hectares), Ning Gehar (14344 hectares), Fara (9101 hectares), Badahs Shang (6298 hectares) and and and and and Nemolo (5303 hectares).

The southern region has the highest proportion of opium production in the country, reaching 54 % to about 2511 tons. The second largest opium production area in Afghanistan is the Western Ministry, accounting for 11 % (1193 tons) of the nation’s production, followed by 12 % (571 tons) in the eastern region. Northeast, northeast and central regions account for 10 % of opium production.


The Office of Drugs and Crimes pointed out that this kind of farming provides about 235,100 full -time work in 2016. The sales of poppies and poppy agricultural products are the main sources of income of poppy farmers, accounting for 57 % of the annual income of the household.

Afghanistan Reconstruction Special Supervisor (SIGAG) pointed out in its latest quarterly report: The anesthesia industry and rampant corruption and fraud are the main sources of illegal income. The underlying drug trafficking also relies on the purchase weapons brought by drugs to resist or seek the protection of the Taliban.

What makes people feel incredible is that in the face of this planting drug industry, the Afghan government has not arrested a operation. It has only been eradicated and has never been reported. It has never been reported.
