Afghan poppy farmers say new seeds will boost opium output

[Ed. Note: Roundup Ready Opium?!? – Mike Rivero]

from Yahoo:

It’s the cash crop of the Taliban and the scourge of Afghanistan β€” the country’s intractable opium cultivation. This year, many Afghan poppy farmers are expecting a windfall as they get ready to harvest opium from a new variety of poppy seeds said to boost yield of the resin that produces heroin.

The plants grow bigger, faster, use less water than seeds they’ve used before, and give up to double the amount of opium, they say.

No one seems to know where the seeds originate from. The farmers of Kandahar and Helmand provinces, where most of Afghanistan’s poppies are grown, say they were hand-delivered for planting early this year by the same men who collect the opium after each harvest, and who also provide them with tools, fertilizer, farming advice β€” and the much needed cash advance.

    “It’s the cash crop of the Taliban”

    Yahoo conveniently “forgets” how poppy production had been cut significantly before the US invasion and the subsequent guarding of poppy fields by US troops.

    Now why did I think about the same company that’s trying to get their grubby little paws into Ukraine, when I seen that story?

    Get your GMO opium seed over here buddy!

  • KSKing

    Well it certainly is GMO seeds, which absolutely could be Round-Up ready. And if it is GMO seeds then that means Monsanto or one of it’s US equivalents is involved. Of course all this opium is not just for the black market, got to keep those dirty pharmaceutical companies supplied cheaply to keep the masses subdued. As for these mystery men supplying the seeds… we call them CIA here in the states.
