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.
