Helmand Farmers Chopping Down Pomegranate Trees, Planting Opium - One Aid Group's Explanation (.pdf):  "If I grow onions I have to take them to the market and in doing so I may have to go through a of checkpoints. In doing so I will have to pay backsheesh to the ANP, militia or whoever it might be. By the time I get to the market I am uncompetitive at best; at worst I can suffer physical injury. It is far better to grow a crop where the trade comes to you; it arrives at your farm gate and buys from you. They inherit the transaction and transportation costs. If there is a degree of insecurity and you have to leave the house you can take with you a few kilograms of opium; you cannot carry a bag of onions."
