This chapter presents a comprehensive model of the world opiate market and charts the immediate after-effects of the Taliban ban, using data from the United Nations and other public sources. It explains the tracking approach using this mode and provides a diagram showing opiate flows from cultivation to consumption. The analysis reveals that Asia dominates not only in production, but also consumption and the seizure of opiates and that it is likely that total world production exceeded consumption and seizures during the late 1990s.
