Greetings to the Living. Thank you for listening to Up Is Down and double-plus-good thanks to all who support this work. Today we look at Afghanistan banning all poppy growing (for real this time) and dealing with the truth of their complicity in the global heroin and fentanyl markets while facing their own escalating opium addiction crisis at home.

The announcement of the poppy ban coincides with the Taliban brokering new trade deals and rebuilding old ties with CCP. Yes, that CCP.

It is not news that Afghanistan is in the rebuilding process following the abrupt departure of US troops (mostly) but it may come as some surprise to learn about the history of Afghanistan's opium trade and their warm history with their neighbor to the east, only briefly interrupted by the US occupation over the past 20 years.

Afghanistan under US military occupation produced approximately 90% of the World’s illegal supply of opium which is used to produce heroin. The production of opium in Afghanistan registered a 49 fold increase since 2001.

In 2017, the production of opium in Afghanistan under US military occupation reached 9000 METRIC TONS.

Poppy is the ONLY cash crop and export of Afghanistan.

Banning or destroying the poppy fields appears to be a death blow to Afghanistan.

So why would they cancel the only commodity they have?
