Politics and Whatnot

Just another liberal political blog

In case you need another reason not to smoke opium…

Apparently, about 90% of the world’s opium supply comes from Afghanistan.  Frontline’s Najibullah Quraishi has a gut-wrenching documentary regarding exactly what you’re funding every time you smoke opium.

The documentary seems to blame this horror on the counter-drug operations in Afghanistan.  True, it could have been done better.   But I think it’s also important to blame the drug smugglers, of course, and those who provide a market for their product.  So stay the hell away from opium.  And cocaine too, while you’re at it.
