Opium cultivation in Afghanistan

In the video Afghan locals and Afghan refugees talk about the problem of poppy cultivation, details about opium history and its eradication in Southern Afghanistan in February 2008. If jobs and work were available to poor Afghans, they will not cultivate poppy which is the only source of income to a lot of people there, say many Afghans. They say poppy cultivation and drugs trafficking are everywhere in Afghanistan. One Afgahn said there were forty to fifty heroin factories during the rule of Taliban in Musa Qala.Taliban are not banning anyone from poppy cultivation. Some of them believe that all problems being faced by Afghansitan are due to poppy cultivation.
