Drug cultivation is booming in Afghanistan

After the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan, tightening sanctions on the country, freezing billions of dollars and taking measures that would have paralyzed the Afghan banking system, the cultivation of opium-producing opium, which in turn is considered a heroin producer, expanded in the fields that were used to grow legitimate crops such as wheat and corn.
In a report for the American Wall Street Journal, it saw that poppy cultivation has accelerated due to severe drought, financial difficulties and the continued closure of borders.
According to the United Nations, the percentage of lands cultivated with poppies under the Taliban rose to 37 percent, as the process of smuggling heroin through Pakistani and Iranian lands began.
