But the drugs aren’t coming over the Mexican border

From the Washington Post:

Federal agents arrested more than 130 alleged drug traffickers in 15 cities, from Charleston, S.C. to Los Angeles, who U.S. officials said smuggled heroin from Mexico and offered phone-in home delivery like that provided by pizza shops (The Washington Post, August 16, 2006, A6).

... and did you see the story this week about how Afghanistan's opium harvest will be the biggest in anyone's memory? You remember Afghanistan. The country we "freed"? Where Osama used to live? You remember HIM, right?

QD, I don’t know if the harvest this year will be bigger than any in recent memory, but I do think that I read not to long ago that something like 80% of the world’s opium in now grown in Afghanistan. I can’t explain this one. I can’t believe the US or Afghan government can’t spray these plants and wipe out the crops. Even if they have to use Napalm or Agent Orange or something, there must be some spray they can use to destroy the crop.
But, even so, that opium is still coming to the US threw Mexico. It doesn’t matter how much they grow if it can’t get here.
