Why did the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (1996-2001), despite claiming to be an Islamic state, fail to ban opium production? Can it solely be explained in terms of economical difficulties like not having an alternative source of income? Were there any serious attempts to ban opium before the 2001 U.S.-led invasion? If there were, why didn't such measures succeed?
