Newsvine – US announces big shift in Afghanistan drug policy

leave a comment »

The BBC had a story. A former heroin addict was working in Afghanistan convincing farmers there to raise pomegranates instead of poppy. Pakistan once had the sun-blocker as cash crop until it was taken out of skin cream products. Maybe more botanical research should be done there also, like finding an organic source or substitute for or a product like sun-blocker. They could sure use it in Australia.  – Sat Jun 27, 2009 9:13 PM EDT

I’ve read 50% of the opium from poppy growing (for morphine) comes from Tasmania in Australia, according to the report on the wallabies who are stoned on the plant and are creating little "crop circles" reported in the press. H. G. Wells’ "War of the Worlds" was dedicated in the introduction of the book to the natives of Tasmania who perished having no immunity to the diseases carried by the rest of the world, totally wiped out. – Sun Jun 28, 2009 3:03 PM EDT
