Greece Exports Much Opium, 1916

Greece Exports Much Opium

Opium is such an important article of export from Greece that it counts third in the country's export list, comming after tobacco and currants. There was an enormous increase in the opium exports in 1914 on account of the war, which reflected in Saloniki shipments of the drug which would otherwise have been landed elsewhere. Oppium shipped from Greece is used for the manufacture of morphine.
