Simply sickening. Who's ass are they looking out for? There has to be a reason besides poppy fields being their sole source of income. It's a 3rd world country -- always has been and always will be. I'm sure the spice trade isn't a very marketable commodity in that country. They know what it is used for, yet refuse to do anything about it.
That is the reason my drug of choice is cocaine. But in all seriousness... Seriously!?
