Afghanistan: Obama-Era Drop in Anti-Drug Programs Fuel Heroin Use Among Women, Children - Breitbart

A drop in U.S.-funded opium eradication efforts in Afghanistan is fueling a growing heroin addiction problem among women and children.
In fact, the Obama administration placed a much-needed revised version of the failed U.S. counternarcotics strategy in Afghanistan "on hold for more than two years" while heroin production reached historic levels.
The $8.5 billion U.S. effort to combat the opium and heroin trade has not stripped the country of its title as the world's top producer of the illegal drugs, which is why a new strategy is necessary, argues the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), a U.S. watchdog agency.
 

 "The most startling aspect of the drug boom, though, is still largely hidden from sight. Tens of thousands of Afghan women, confined to their homes by tradition and often dependent on addicted men, are succumbing, too. This has created a growing phenomenon of drug-centered households where family relations, economic stability and social traditions can easily collapse," it later adds.

Under President Barack Obama's tenure, cultivation and production of opium and its heroin derivative skyrocketed while efforts to destroy the illicit drug crops dropped to nearly zero.
