How to use "Drug trafficking" in context?
There is no sugar coating the reality of drug trafficking. The global illicit trade in drugs is worth more than $1 trillion a year, and it fuels violence, addiction and human rights abuses. The problem is getting worse. International drug seizures grew by an astonishing 38 percent between 2009 and 2013, while production and sales of marijuana, cocaine and heroin have all continued to grow. This is no coincidence. The trafficking networks that rely on violence and corruption to smuggle drugs into the global marketplace are getting more powerful and better organized. Modern methods of transportation and communication have made it easy for traffickers to move large quantities of drugs across long distances.
