Synthetic opiates have completely replaced opiates from poppies in the U.S. None of the drugs used in the U.S. are made from Afghan poppies.
Bring the troops home from Afghanistan. It is not worth another life lost to protect either the government of that miserable failed state, or the government of Barack Obama.
Poppies! Poppies! Poppies!
Cool film clip!
Your extreme ignorance and just plain sillyness can be excused because I can only surmise that you are teenaged or a young twenty something. If not, you are a complete and utter moron who needs to learn history - ignoring trouble spots is what got us into this mess in the first place.
Interesting. I know guys who were there and they were told not to mess with the crops becuase it would turn the locals against us.
