The Taliban stopped herion production for one year. Then realized the loss in revenue was unacceptable.

*During the Taliban rule, Afghanistan saw a bumper opium crop of 4,500 metric tons in 1999,.[13]*

*In July 2000, Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, collaborating with the United Nations to eradicate heroin production in Afghanistan, declared that growing poppies was un-Islamic, resulting in one of the world’s most successful anti-drug campaigns. The Taliban enforced a ban on poppy farming via threats, forced eradication, and public punishment of transgressors. The result was a 99% reduction in the area of opium poppy farming in Taliban-controlled areas, roughly three quarters of the world’s supply of heroin at the time.[14] The ban was effective only briefly due to the deposition of the Taliban in 2002.*

*However, some people[who?], believe that certain parties benefited from the price increase during the ban. Some[who?], even believe it was a form of Market manipulation on the part of certain drug lords. Dried opium, unlike most agricultural products, can easily be stored for long periods without refrigeration or other expensive equipment. With huge stashes of opium stored in secret hideaways. Taliban, and other groups became involved in the drug trade were in theory able to make huge personal profits during the price spikes after the 2000 ban and the chaos following 9/11.[15][16]*

*Since 2008 the Taliban insurgency has been supporting farmers growing poppy as a source of income for insurgent operations.[17]*
