U.S. Marines, sponsored by the U.S. taxpayer, stand vigilant watch over poppy fields in Afghanistan ensuring that the world is supplied with plenty of smack. Just don't get caught with any of the poppy derivatives that your tax dollars paid for or you will get a visit from your friendly neighborhood S.W.A.T.and a required stay in a gray bar hotel.

Doesn't this just make your chest swell up with patriotic pride? Good job Marines! Semper Fi to the N.W.O.!


In 2000 the Taliban banned opium production, a first in Afghan history.

The Taliban's top drug official in Nangarhar, Mullah Amir Mohammed Haqqani, said the ban would remain regardless of whether the Taliban received aid or international recognition.

"Whether we get assistance or not, poppy growing will never be allowed again in our country."

However, with the 2001 expulsion of the Taliban, opium cultivation returned, and by 2005 Afghanistan provided 87% of the world supply, rising to 90% in 2006.
