On the Opium Trail

Badakhshan Province, Afghanistan, 1992 An Afghan child in a poppy field. Afghanistan produces nearly 2,000 tons of illicit opium per year, a total second in the world to Burma's. Much of the country's is in ruins, and huge swaths of farmland are unusable. For many Afghan farmers, opium is the only sure cash crop they can plant.
