Heroin Poppies a Growing Problem in Afghanistan

Heroin Poppies a Growing Problem in Afghanistan

Have you ever tried heroin? What about other opioids? Do you have any struggles with illegal drug usage? Have you ever heard about where heroin comes from? The problem of heroin growing and smuggling is a huge issue with national governments, drug law enforcement agencies, and international bodies like the UN. And it's making the situation worse in Afghanistan, even as the war there has left the country in wreckage. As the rule of law has broken down, warlords and drug lords have moved in, planting huge fields of opium poppies all over Afghanistan. And with the deadline for ISAF withdrawal looming in 2014, locals are getting more and more concerned that drugs will bring corruption and crime to their country.

Heroin is a very dangerous drug. Some drug experts have called it one of the worst drugs worldwide-it's certainly one of the deadliest. And though other drugs like cocaine, meth, PCP, marijuana, OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin all contribute to overdoses and crime, the fact is that opium poppies used for making heroin are spreading all over Afghanistan, leading to a booming illegal drug trade. 2013 has seen a record-breaking year of heroin production, with over 209,000 hectares being used to grow poppies.

Do you ever shoot up heroin? Do you wish you could quit? Have you ever considered that your drug habit might be causing murder, extortion, and fear in a country halfway across the globe? Using drugs is harmful, and not just for the addict himself/herself. But it can be hard to quit on your own.
