From a reader, re that heroin story below:
The article you quoted said:
Three years ago, it recorded more overdoses than any other major European city. Now, after a two-year decline in drug deaths — in part because of the war in Afghanistan, which interrupted the production and distribution of heroin — the number of overdoses is rising.
Proof that the Taliban did nothing to curtail the flow of heroin from Afghanistan. We have been told that the Taliban hated the drug trade and was successful in stopping it.
