War Machine is a funny political satire movie (at least for the first 30 minutes of it) with Brad Pitt and ""Eric" from "That '70s Show".

===================
You do whatever you can to stimulate the local economy.
- Heroin is the only thing bringing money into the area.
Not that I like to think where the money is going to, exactly, but money keeps the people happy, so we're rolling with that.
- Can't they grow something else?
- Yeah, they could grow cotton. Cotton would grow here.
- Why don't they grow cotton, then?
- Because the United States Congress will not allow any United States aid and development funds to be directed towards the cultivation of a crop that will end up on the world market in competition with US farmers.
- Oh.
- Which pretty much rules out cotton.
- Sure.
- So we're growing heroin instead.
- Right.
- I think we're doing a pretty good job here, sir.
===================
The reality is a little bit more nuanced though.

А героин, типа, растят без помощи и ничего, справляются? Это цитата как всегда из дебилизма киносценаристов.

На стадии выращивания - не очевидно, что прям так намного выгоднее. Там основные деньги скорее всего оседают в канале распространения, заметная часть - в обработке, а до выращивания небось доходят совсем хвостики.

Но, кстати, возможно с хлопком у них та же проблема, если нет достаточно прямого канала сбыта.
