Has there been an increase or decease of opium addicts in Afghanistan?
There’s been an increase.
Can the opium problem in Afg be controlled?
If they want to, yes. If they don’t want to, no.
The police, especially anti-narcotics, are trying to control the problem. Do you think that’s possible?
These anti-narcotic police are opium addicts themselves. If they’re given some money, they’ll do anything.
