  • UNODC Afghanistan Cannabis survey 2010 June 2011

    Posted on July 1st, 2011 TimB No comments

    This 2010 Afghanistan Cannabis Survey updates the first-ever Afghanistan Cannabis Survey that was  produced in 2009 by the UNODC and the Ministry of Counter Narcotics (MCN). Based on years of  evidence from cannabis seizures that pointed to Afghanistan as a main cannabis producer, the 2009 survey  was the initial effort to systemically estimate cannabis cultivation and production in the country.  The findings confirmed Afghanistan’s role as a major grower of cannabis, but also discovered that the country produced more cannabis resin or hashish than any other nation. The reason why was found to be the country’s high yields, up to 145 kg of resin per hectare as compared to Morocco’s 40 kg per hectare.
