Mission Successful

'Occupiers responsible for heroin surge in Russia'

"The head of Russia's federal drug control agency has lambasted the US-led forces for failing to stamp out drug production in Afghanistan. Victor Ivanov blamed US President Barack Obama's administration for not doing enough to destroy opium poppy crops and curb the production of heroin in Afghanistan, the BBC reported on Saturday.
At least 30,000 people die in Russia every year due to heroin, 90% of which comes from Afghanistan, Ivanov added. Senior officials in Moscow say the consequence has been a flood of cheap heroin in Russia and Central Asia.
Poppy production in Afghanistan has actually increased every year since the US-led invasion in 2001 and the country's poppy market produces 95 percent of the world's opium."

And why is there a glut of drugs in the colony?
flashback, the excuse:

UN wants 'flood of drugs' in Afghanistan to devalue opium May 2009

"United Nations officials in Afghanistan are attempting to create a "flood of drugs" in the country intended to destroy the value of opium and force poppy farmers to switch to legal crops such as wheat.
After the failure to destroy fields of the scarlet flowers in Afghanistan's volatile south, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime says the answer is to stop the drugs from leaving the country in the first place.
"Manual eradication is incompetent and inefficient," UNODC chief Antonio Maria Costa said during a visit to the western Afghan province of Herat. "So we want to see more efforts to stop the flow of drugs across Afghanistan's borders and the hitting of high-value targets to create a market disruption.
"We want to create a flood of drugs within Afghanistan. There will be so much opium inside Afghanistan unable to go out that the price will go down."

They never planned to stop any of it at the borders. They had to come up with some bizarre excuse as to why, after the Taliban had essentially eradicated opium poppy cultivation, the country has had record harvests year after year under western occupation. One of the overlapping reasons for keeping the bloodbath going in Afghanistan is to use heroin to cause instability in Russia.
The Russians know exactly how the game is being played, which is one of the reasons for enmity between them and this country:

Drug Trafficking to Russia Transits through Georgia

"The territory of Georgia has been turning into one of powerful ways of drug trafficking to Russia, leader of the Russian Federal Drug Control Service (FDCS) Viktor Ivanov said at a meeting of its collegium on Saturday. "
