Afghan Heroin: The Lost War
Afghan Heroin: The Lost War investigates how the war on terror in Afghanistan has unleashed heroin into the mainstream.
The film talks about how Heroin is one of the most addictive drugs on Earth. Some 90 per cent of the drug is grown in Afghanistan. After the Western nations started their hunt for Osama Bin Laden and his Taliban allies in late 2001, the country torn apart from decades of war became the world’s opium growing capital.
The film shows how the War on Terror has inadvertently unleashed a massive supply of the deadly drug into the western nations. The war left no options with many impoverished farmers but to grow the opium poppy to survive.
The documentary delves into the devastating effects of addiction. It shows shocking scenes of a young Norwegian couple hustling, scoring and shooting up several times a day only to soothe down thier inner turbulence.
