Farmers in Afghanistan are finally finding something to grow that will make them more money than opium.
IDPC reports on a UNODC survey…
The findings confirmed Afghanistanâ€™s role as a major grower of cannabis, but also discovered that the country produced more cannabis resin or hashish than any other nation.
Cannabis gross income shot up for farmers between 2009 and 2010 from $3,900 per hectare (about 2.5 acres) to $9,000 per hectare. Opium was at $4,900 and wheat at $770.
That drug war really is effective, isn’t it?
