1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

Afghan institutions too weak to handle drugs problem: UN

    "An opium crackdown is bearing fruit in the north and east of Afghanistan, but progress there has been outweighed by increased production in the south"

    That's why this problem can never be solved using methods of eradication, any 'crackdown' on poppy fields in one place leads to a profit opportunity for growers elsewhere, so production simply moves there. Sadly I think it will be many years and a lot of wasted lives and money before the authorities acknowledge this and move on to effective policies.
