The New Afghan drugs trade

There is considerable fuss and disquiet in Kabul diplomatic circles as drug smuggling hots up. That's smuggling drugs INTO Afghanistan.

Apparently the labrynthine systems and bureaucratic delays have made the import of generic antibiotics, and basic drugs, so time consuming, there is now a healthy trade in branded drugs - which it is suspected can often arrive as diplomatic supplies.

It is not entirely unlikely either, that drugs are leaking out of military medical establishments as the super rich elites can readily afford supplies.
