Interesting article. Sounds to me that if Afghani govt wants to eliminate poppy production without having cannabis take its place they're gonna need competent leaders who are willing to put their ass on the line to fight corruption and show the general populace that legit farming can be profitable beyond subsistence and that not everyone is a criminal. But who's willing to put their ass on the line with politicians being killed left and right specifically over drug policy? Sad state of affairs. Sounds like the UN actually has a pretty good grasp on what needs to be done for once, to bad the blue helmets are about as useful as a wart on a cock in these sort of situations.
