Droga (33): Surpresas no Afeganistão

(...) one surprise of this year’s survey was the extent of drug addiction in Afghanistan, which is far greater than had been previously estimated, with about 3.8 per cent of the population – nearly one million people – using some form of drug.

Most use hashish, with a little over 1 per cent using opium or heroin, Mr. Costa said, describing a disturbing trend where Afghan children are being offered opium derivates to relieve pain or even hunger.

Also surprising was the extent of cannabis cultivation. The survey put Afghanistan’s marijuana fields at about 30,000 hectares, making it the second-largest producer of cannabis after Morocco.
