Over last 13 years, due to some reasons including increasingly insecurity, neighbors’ interference in internal affairs of Afghanistan, affiliation of drug traders with high government authorities, increase in addiction and making of a lot of money by drug traders, Afghan Government has failed to properly pursue counter-narcotics campaign in the country.
