A new Army investigation into use of drugs by American soldiers serving in Afghanistan apparently has not led to great concern among officials. They believe use of drugs in Afghanistan is not any greater than what is found in a typical military installation within the USA. Investigators have found evidence that soldiers are using and distributing heroin, morphine and other opiates. There is evidence Afghan military personnel sell drugs to their American comrades in arms.
Of course, there are stories of soldiers dying after mixing cocktails of opiates and stories of soldiers stealing from medical bags. Afghanistan is the source of 90% of opium raised in the world. But, to some positive thinking military leaders, there is no difference between being at Ft. Leonard Wood in Missouri or being a on a mountain top in Afghanistn!
