Well if you are looking for the made in tag on your sachet of heroin and find it missing chances are that it was never put there in the first place. The likelihood however is that it originated in the beautiful poppy fields of Afghanistan. Nearly three fourths of the world heroin originates from Afghanistan. Several other areas the world over are known for the cultivation of Heroin including East Asia, Russia, Meso America, and Asia Minor. For instance India produces substantial quantities of Opium as well but there its production is restricted by the government and most is processed into making morphine. The climate and soil conditions in Iran, Pakistan and North India also suit the Poppy crop.

Heroin addiction is also a chronic problem in countries bordering Afghanistan, including Iran and Pakistan. In the Islamic Republican of Iran the smuggling of drugs generally carries a heavy sentence.
