    National Edition News cover for May 1, 2014 - U.S. drug fighters see Afghan opium skyrocketing as troops pack up: An Afghan farmer works on a poppy field in the Khogyani district of Jalalabad, east of Kabul, Afghanistan, Thursday, April 17, 2014. Last May's harvest produced a staggering 5,500 metric tons (6,000 tons) of opium, 49 percent higher than the previous year and more than the combined output of the rest of the world, according to a report issued Wednesday by the United Nations' drug control agency. Poppy cultivation is expected to increase in both eastern and western provinces of the country. (AP Photo/Rahmat Gul)
