Buy Afghan Opium Now. Buy! Buy!

Good news! A think tank, the Senlis Council, are proposing poppy licensing. This will decriminalise poppy growing, and allow UN agencies to buy up the whole crop, turning some into medicines, and destroying the rest. Advantages:
1 the poppy growers get to live.
2 addicts in the west get their supplies legitimately, without having to push the drug onto the next generation of victims.
3 criminals and terrorists lose a funding source.

You read it here first: I bloged this idea months ago, but Technorati search cannot pick it up.
