Is there a reason why...

...the United States is still following its policies of eradication realtive to hard drugs emanating from places like Colombia and Afghanistan?

Over the weekend, for instance, a news item mentioned that the record tonnage of poppies in Afghanistan are worth 3 billion dollars in illegal funds.

Wouldn't it be cost effective if we were to spend 3 billions to pay Afghani farmers not to grow poppies? Don't we spend that much paying farmers in our own farming areas, particularly the South, not to grow certain crops?
