Possible CIA Consiracy

...okay, probably not, but if any of you are bloggers who like to start conspiracy theories this one would be a doosey:

Afghan farmers are this year sowing wheat instead of poppy - not because they have suddenly been converted to the argument that producing heroin is not in the national interest.

Market forces have been the deciding factor - with wheat prices doubling in the past year, and the street price of heroin falling, it is now more cost effective to grow wheat.

-That's from Paul Krugman's blog, I added the possible conspiracy part, other people can do the serious reporting
