A and the was the burmese see it. It is a problem that will not lie solved without tremendous Effort and Cost inside Burma. Gen be win s revolutionary Council is anxious to rid the country of the stigma of being an opium producing Region hut in View of the nation s economic problems it faces an almost insurmountable task. Northeastern Burma is part of the Quot a Olden Triangle of Burma. Thailand and Laos. An area that annually produces an estimated Tou tons of opium Aud its derivatives that Are con sum cd by addicts Tik world Over. Northeastern harm itself 1 is believed to produce a whopping 400 of the 700 tons. Of All of that 400 tons could find its was to the streets of the United Stales and Kur Ofie it would in Worth some $h0 billion or As much As film Unm per kilogram two pounds. While the in a or burmese a it up grower Mav receive less than $10 per kilogram it still is a lucrative business for him. For Burma a government the problem is economic. Olin Al and social it is not simply a question of replacing poppies with other Cash crops such As tobacco fruit or vegetables All of which would bring the grower much less than opium. Tile area where opium is produced is Remote a almost inaccessible and often outside administrative control Tor much of the year. Moreover those who grow the poppy Are backward and Limiter the domination of the traffickers who buy their opium. A 1964 investigation found that most of the i peasants engaged in poppy cultivation barely managed to make a living from the soil poor throughout a their lives most Are confirmed opium addicts themselves. Which makes their social emancipation even More difficult. Burmese officials have blamed the British Tor introducing the opium habit. They say it was unknown in Burma until la British took Over the country. What few Laws the British introduced the suppression of narcotics were ineffective the burmese say. And Iii lower ranks the British actively encouraged the Hill tribes to grow and consume opium. This was done to retain the loyally of the tribal chieftains who were empowered by the British to Levy taxes on opium production to increase their revenues. When Burma gained Independence in 1948 one of the first acts of the free government was to ban consumption and production of narcotics but enforcing the ban presented problems that have endured. Over the years Burma has attacked the problem through crop substitution crackdowns on traffickers and through educational programs among the tribesmen who grow the poppy. Little Progress has been made. A developing country beset by severe internal economic and political problems the burmese face far More pressing problems.
