Big money

Today's fun fact from the BBC:
He said the amount of opium produced by one hectare (2.47 acres) had almost doubled to 56kg (123lb) in the five years to 2009.

Think about that. How much does 123 pounds of heroin sell for on the street? ...and how little do the farmers get paid?

Maybe we should start a free trade heroin.....?

Afghanistan could rapidly become a much wealthier country.....
