Good old Indiana made the list. I was curious about the laughing gas...

It is hard to provide farmers with an alternate cash crop rather than opium poppy cultivation. If I recall good intentioned but wasted efforts were made to grow soy beans where they would not grow and if grown there would be no market to sell them. Unfortunately destroying poppy fields does not win any hearts and minds among rural population whose help we would like in countering Taliban.
For the 7.6 billion we probably could have given every poppy farmer a visa and well stocked 7-11 somewhere in the heartland. Bet most would write home saying " Screw the Taliban, America is Great!"
