Illicit Intoxication

The Friday File: In 2013, coca-plant production in Colombia bottomed at 119,000 acres. It’s since skyrocketed to 361,000 acres and Columbia now accounts for 68% of global coca plant production, a new high. Not to be left out, opium-poppy production in Afghanistan is also up from 346,000 acres in 2010 to 815,000 acres in 2017; more than doubling opium output to 9,000 tons. Cocaine and opium prices should be falling!
