The U.S. government is trying to get the Afghanistan government to agree to spray the opium crop with herbicides. It's a money-making scheme for U.S. petroleum companies, petrochemical companies, producing and selling the poison. They did this in South America in Columbia and polluted large areas and made many people sick in the process. It also didn't work to reduce cocaine coming from the area.
