Opium poppy cultivation must be eliminated

writing pen1

Cultivation of opium poppy and manufacturing of narcotic drugs have been a great problem in Myanmar which damages the image of the country.
Although the practice of opium poppy cultivation was brought into the country by colonialists about a century ago, it can still have a negative impact on the history of the country enormously. Another problem at the border areas is the manufacturing of stimulant tablets by illegal groups. As a result, stimulant tablets are available in a number of places in the country as well as in other countries.
On the other hand, successive governments of the country internationally vowed a number of times to eliminate cultivation of opium poppy and manufacturing of narcotic drugs at the particular time without success. Actually, the problem of drugs not only affects Myanmar but also hurt the entire world.
In addition, Myanmar is put into danger not only but narcotic drugs itself but also from the money generated from drug trafficking. Recently, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing said that the problem of opium cultivation and narcotic drugs must be eliminated once and for all since the problem is putting the mankind into danger. It is high time the problem were addressed once and for all.
