The Taliban intend to sell marijuana in a “£330 million commerce agreement” after capturing control.

The Taliban intend to sell marijuana in a “£330 million commerce agreement” after capturing control.

The Taliban made an unexpected statement that they were going into a multi-million pound medicine deal with a pharmaceutical business, but the company has refuted the assertion.

The Taliban negotiated a multi-million-pound narcotics contract to sell cannabis in their first economic arrangement since capturing control in Afghanistan.

They indicated that they intended to construct a processing plant within “days” to sell “all cannabis goods.”

Despite the fact that the drug is banned in the country, officials are alleged to turn a blind eye due to the lucrative nature of the business.

In two tweets, Taliban spokesperson Qari Saeed Khosty appeared to confirm the transaction, saying, “The company intends to develop a cannabis processing facility in Afghanistan, which will generate all cannabis goods.”

“The corporation intends to invest (dollar)430 million in this sector.”

The project will start in a few days.”

After gaining power in a bloodbath this summer, the Taliban promised to make drug manufacture illegal.

However, the pharmaceutical business with which the Taliban claimed to have made an agreement was obliged to deny it, causing some uncertainty.

An Australian company that develops cannabis-based therapeutic cream, according to sources, would be included in the agreement.

Cpharm would be given access to thousands of acres of Afghan cannabis fields in exchange for £330 million, according to The Times.

According to SBS News in Australia today (November 25), the unexpected announcement was apparently a mix-up.

“No one from here has met with anyone,” Cpharm director Josie Gabites said.

It has nothing to do with us.”

“We don’t have any ties to the Taliban or marijuana.”

We have no idea where it came from.

“We have nothing to do with the Taliban or marijuana.”

Australian businesses are prohibited from doing business with the Taliban due to official trade prohibitions.

When the Islamist organization seized power in the war-torn country, which is also the world’s greatest producer of the opium poppy plant, it pledged to treat drugs with “zero tolerance.”

For some years, farmers in Helmand and Kandahar provinces have been growing cannabis and opium, and they have continued to openly deal with the new authorities.

Opium shipments from Afghanistan reached record highs following the US-led coalition’s invasion of the nation in 2001, according to data from the UN Office of Drugs and Crime.
