This Pashto language logbook, obtained by Coalition troops in 2009, appears to catalogue local measurements and values of opium either collected from members of the community or traded. It is unclear if the logbook came from a local trafficker or represents a tax collection record, but the account book notes when individuals had arrears to pay off, and appears to have been updated in cases when an individual paid off his balance.
