Surge in Opium Production is the Outcome of the Colonial Invasion of Afghanistan

Surge in Opium Production is the Outcome of the Colonial Invasion of Afghanistan

SIGAR, a body that is responsible to keep an eye on the developmental activities of U.S. in Afghanistan said in its recent report that despite spending 7.6 Billion dollars, Afghanistan is still the number one producer of opium globally.

After the brutal invasion of Afghanistan by U.S. and NATO forces, due to its propaganda machine some people were swayed that, the cultivation of opium, its usage and trade to other countries will decrease significantly. However, the reality is diametrically opposite to these false expectations and the production of opium has increased many folds. Initially the yearly production of opium was 138 tons, but now it has reached to a shocking figure of 5500 tons. Moreover, in 2005 the number of opium addicts was 130,000 people; whereas in 2014 it has reached to 1.3 million people, which indeed is an alarming growth.
