Drug Fight Confronted with More Challenges

The fight against narcotics faces increasing challenges amid a bumper poppy harvest in Myanmar and a rise in Afghan drug trafficking, a police official said.

The poppy growing area in northern Myanmar has increased to 44,867 hectares this year, up 41 percent year-on-year, according to figures from the Ministry of Public Security.

Apart from producing traditional drugs, such as opium and heroin, northern Myanmar has also become the main source of the synthetic drug crystal methamphetamine, commonly referred to as ice, coming into China, Liu Yuejin, director of the ministry's narcotics control bureau, told China Daily.
