Political and economic crisis turns Myanmar into largest narcotics producer

(LANKAPUVATH | MYANMAR) – Myanmar has turned into an active centre in Asia for the distribution of methamphetamine and ICE to Asian countries and from there to China and the whole world.

The drug dealers took advantage of the political chaos that the country is going through to manufacture and deal more with this substance.

It is often done in ethnic areas and the Golden Triangle area.

According to the reports of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, and the opinions of local researchers, the country has turned into a real threat as the largest drug producer among nations as Myanmar is the second-largest producer of opium in the world. With the country’s economy in decline and high poverty rate, this industry is flourishing on a large scale, pushing the people of Myanmar to earn more income via illegal methods.
