Opium Output Jumps in Burma, Laos


A new report says tackling poverty will reduce poppy cultivation in Southeast Asia.

Opium cultivation in Burma increased for a sixth consecutive year in 2012 despite 

increased government efforts to eradicate the crop, while in Laos land devoted 

to poppy production rose by more than half of the previous year, according 

to a new report released Wednesday.
