This paper discusses the background, problems of illegal drugs trafficking and the methods being used to stop the trafficking of drugs in the United States. This paper reveals that money seized in drug stings and received from fines for drug offenders is a billion dollar industry for the American government. The author believes that completely ending the entire drug trafficking business is almost impossible because there are too many loopholes and too much money at stake for both the dealers and the government.

From the Paper:

"The largest distributor of drugs, especially cocaine, comes from Columbia. Interagency intelligence assessment statistics say that nearly sixty-five percent of all cocaine goes through the southern borders of the United States. Columbian dealers send the drugs through Mexico, whose laws are not nearly as strict, and the dealers in Mexico bring them across the border. They come through Texas and New Mexico by ground and California by ground, air and seaports."
