Ok so we know that in Afghanistan a large portion of revenue is generated by the Taliban by the illegal sale of opium and its derivitives to countries world wide including the US. Since Afghan opium from my understanding was a heavy hitter on the streets people were buying it like crazy therefore funding indirectly the talibans agenda. In response by TPTB decides to get with there Pharma buddies and mass produce synthetics like oxycontin, methadone etc. and pump them onto the streets at an affordable price for addicts and recreational users for consumption therefore diverting funds from the taliban to a domestic source.
. According to police chief of Cleona PA Ray Barry my Criminology instructor that it is more common to find pills being distributed at $5 as opposed to a bag of heroin in the area that goes for $20 a bag street value in that area I will post the details after I get a copy of the statistics that are produced when they become available again that is only in my area so I cannot speak with certainty for other areas.
Thanks for the insight, is it possible to link me where you got the info about the Oxycontin by anychance?
