  •  Shifting Growing to Burma Has a Plus Though (1+ / 0-)

    The main reason for trying to end poppy profits in Afghanistan is to undercut the financing of the Taliban there.  Although Burma is a military dictatorship, at least if poppy profiting shifted to Burma, the Burma authorities would use the profits to support their power and lifestyle, and not to support jihadist movements.  But I agree that legalization of all drugs and distribution of them through legal networks ought to happen (maybe common sense will someday prevail).
