Drug trafficking



Drug trafficking

It can be defined thus:

how it arises?
Well, the history of drug trafficking is very old, this problem has already been long
however, one of "origins" was by the famous opium war, when with the use of more
open and blatant violence England and France opened the gates of China in the 19th
century, this in order to introduce and promote the consumption of opium and this
only to improve the economy of this country.
Currently, crime organized, or as we all have heard him, drug trafficking, because it
relate to a historical event happened in the USA in the year of 1933, when the law of
the prohibition of the alcoholic beverages, is accepted.
According to historians with the establishment of this law in the United States, was a
great increase of producers illicit, illegal, and illegal distributors of alcohol, known as
gangster bands, which I think a moment of insecurity in the United States.
However, some time later, the be annulled this Act, as it was expected, the gangster
were "jobless", by which they had to find other methods of survival and quickly they
deregulated, this gave them a great economic power. Thus they were spreading and
people began to get into this "business" illegal, of course; even as authorities, as it is
known today.

What is it?
Drug trafficking is the illegal trade in toxic drugs
in large quantities. The process (which begins
with the cultivation of substances, continues with
production and ends with the distribution and
sale) tends to be carried out by various illegal
organizations (called posters) that specialize in
different parts of the chain. The largest groups
engaged in drug trafficking tend to have
international presence and boast a power similar
to that of a Government. Its members have
dangerous weapons and their leaders manage
huge sums of money

link of the current problem of drug traffickers, goes beyond
the repression and the issues of public health, because it
makes a threat to the economic and social order in the whole

Alcohol: Although it is a legal drug in the

world today does not mean it does not
cause mental disorders in those who
consume it. And although many people do
not know, alcohol is addictive.
Snuff: Contains nicotine. Nicotine triggers a
series of disorders in all mechanisms of the
body and primarily in the cardio circulatory
area. The sum of all culminate in irreversible
heart damage, heart attack or sudden
death. It is also a legal drug.

the central nervous system, derived from
the leaves of the coca bush Erythroxylon

The consequences of drug addiction

The addict can not stop eating without great effort and
help, this person can not live without thinking about drugs.
Su mente ser un desorden y poco a poco se ir
deteriorando. Su memoria fallar al igual que su rapidez
mental y capacidad de habla.
The young drug addict will have problems in your family,
with friends, at school or in college.
It is increasingly more distance from his family and beings
who just want the best for him.
The individual set back from all confused and not knowing
what to do.

It is important to note that Colombia is a country that the world
tends to be related to the production and export of drugs and for
this reason the good name of Colombians has been defamed in
the course of time, usually a Colombian who will to travel abroad
has a different a person who is a Colombian national treatment.
Remarkably, the drug leads to several problems in the world,
among them: drug addiction, poverty, marginalization, social
inequality, corruption, impunity, among others.
poverty and marginalization increases when drug trafficking and
that it generates more violence and thus leads to a social
imbalance, violence is generated because there is divergence
between the ideals of government and drug traffickers also can
not forget that drug addiction causes health problems, and it is
very difficult to control because after incurring it is too
complicated to overcome.
