$2.7 billion in heroin was seized in India. It was the largest drug bust in the country’s history. Russia and allied countries have militarized their borders with Afghanistan to mitigate the rising tide of narcotics trafficking and prevent the free movement of terrorists. At the same time, the Taliban has said they want to “regulate” the drug trade. Tom Norton, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, joins Scottie Nell Hughes to share his insights. He argues that “poisoning the infidel” amounts to “drug jihad” on the part of the Taliban and that the illicit drug trade funds the Taliban despite strict rules prohibiting heroin use in their own ranks.
