The Nationalist Government under General Chiang Kai Shek during the Nanjing Decade (1928- 1937) followed contradictory opium policies. Chiang himself was morally opposed to opium use, but other government ministers saw opium as a source of much needed revenue. The government first attempted to reform the people into proper citizens to conform to the modern standards, then raised the official price, which discouraged a certain number of people, then sometimes shot the recidivists (strangely about one per county). [47] Chiang also turned to the Green Gang mob boss Du Yuesheng to head the Shanghai Opium Suppression Bureau. Remarked one American diplomat, "the real motive appears to be to increase revenues by drawing within the orbit of the Opium Suppression Bureau the opium traffic in the Settlement and French Concessions." Prohibition, that is, was a guise to extend the government opium monopoly. "Suppression" officials talked openly of their duty to realize more opium revenue for the government.

Countries in which the government is ineffective are the most fertile ground for large-scale poppy cultivation, he said.

The Peony bar is Opium’s hidden gem, nestled somewhere within our labyrinthine corridors, behind the red curtain on the second floor. Peony has very different feel to the rest of the venue – it’s the Yang to Opium’s Ying and is often considered the most romantic room in the building. Despite being the smallest of all three bars it’s a great self-contained space for private party up to 30 guests, who will be served by your own bartender and look after for the duration of your stay with us. Exclusive hire of the Peony bar includes full waiting staff/bartenders and access to the sound system. Pierre-Arnaud Chouvy (2009). Opium: Uncovering the Politics of the Poppy.

The problem of heroin addiction goes beyond the drug itself. Overprescription of legal opioid drugs— along with less-than-upstanding doctors and pharmacists who run "pill mills" that prescribe painkillers freely — has helped create widespread addiction to opioids, said Theodore Cicero, a professor of psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis who has researched opioid abuse. (Though only 4 percent of people who misuse prescription pills go on to use heroin, nearly 80 percent of people who become addicted to heroin had used prescription pills first, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.)
