Heroin is made from Cannabis according to British tabloid newspaper

One of my favorite blogs, Bad Science, links to an article in the crappy tabloid Daily Mail from a couple of weeks ago. Daily Mail published the following:

“RAF Harrier jump jets have blown up the world’s biggest drug haul in Afghanistan by dropping three 1,000lb bombs on a 237-ton stash of cannabis. Officials believe the area – near to the Taliban stronghold of Quetta in Pakistan – was turning dried cannabis leaves into heroin.”
