A new report warns Afghanistan is becoming a major methamphetamine producer, leaving addicts in its wake.
Not only can they grow opimum, it seems the lands of Afghanistan are also ripe for ephedra which can make ephedrine a key component of meth.
Alcohol is the worst drug for deaths, because of the widespread use of it, but heroin next, crack cocaine and then methamphetamine, so 2 of the top 4 will be coming out of Afghanistan.
There has been a steady rise of Meth addicts here in Aus over the last 10 years, seems a pretty nasty drug, cheap, easy to get hooked on, devastating results.
Of course the religion of peace bans drugs and the selling of them is OK as they kill white man who they are at war with.
I wonder what drug they will start making next, assume they grow Cannabis there but probably not the strong cultivated stuff you get from niche warehouses.
