An extremely profitable business, which is also extremely low risk when undertaken on a large enough scale, with protection from the various law enforcement agencies. A natural for deep state groups, which can be safely assumed to control the overwhelming majority of global drug trafficking.

Official narrative

The global drug trade is an immensely profitable business, and as such, its reporting in the commercially-controlled media is heavily influenced by deep state interests keen to protect their profits. The official narrative emphasises the role of bit players, noting that, for example, cocaine "is often brought in to the UK by drug mules; in suitcases or by swallowing bags."[1] National governments and authorities in general are routinely portrayed by the establishment as staunch opponents of the illegal drug trade, as evidenced by their pursuing a "war on drugs". The massive evidence pointing to close ties between drug cartels, intelligence agencies and deep state groups, is almost never mentioned in the context of drug running.

Problems

Gary Webb's Dark Alliance website exposed the CIA's involvement in the crack cocaine business.[2]

The methods of smuggling suggested by the official narrative do not allow for adequate explanation of the amount of drugs smuggled. Gary Webb's exhaustive and convincing documentation of CIA-connected cocaine trafficking states that [in the mid-1970s] "the drug was carried across the border hidden in suitcases and shoes [but] as the industry grew, the cartels expanded and shipped by cargo ships, planes, stolen cars and trucks." This would also explain why CIA planes have being found full of cocaine either when accidentally arrested or crashed.</ref>

The Susurluk incident is worth investigating for anyone who is interested in state approved drug trafficking, and also for anyone seeking evidence for the existence of a hidden nexus of high level politicians, drug traffickers, arms dealers and intelligence agency operatives - the Turkish term provided the English phrase "deep state".


"I stood at the Friendship Bridge at Termez [Uzbekistan] in 2003 and watched the Jeeps with blacked-out windows bringing the heroin through from Afghanistan, en route to Europe. I watched the tankers of chemicals roaring into Afghanistan. Yet I could not persuade my country to do anything about it."
Craig Murray

The disinterest of authorities in investigating massive money laundering by large banks,[3] the scale of drug smuggling operations and the apparently inability of the authorities to prevent it would seem to support the accusations of a lot of whistleblowers:- that the resources of nation states are being marshaled, not to hinder the global drug trade, but to actively promote and carry it out.

Globalisation

Daniel Hopsicker wrote in 2016 that "The first industry to globalize vertically was the illegal drug business. It’s an open question whether drug trafficking drove globalization, or the other way around."[4] The profits of the trade provided a huge incentive for the formidable amount of work needed to organise the monopolize the trade to the extent seen in the 21st century. Landmark events in the legal aspect of globalisation include the 1961 UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, which consolidated existing legislation and expanded the number of drugs to be effectively illegal worldwide (for example, by including cannabis) - establishing the huge potential for profits from the processing and smuggling of illegal drugs.

Naturally derived drugs

Humans have been using plant derived, either partly processed or in natural form since records began and no doubt before.

Cannabis

Cannabis is the most popular recreational drug. It can be grown in most locations with relative ease, but therefore not so expensive as other drugs and is bulky to smuggle. As a result, production centres and smuggling routes are diverse. This presents a problem to the illegal drug trade. For the last half century, their solution to maintain profitability has been to strictly prohibit its cultivation especially in the 'developed' countries such as North America and Europe.

Cocaine

Cocaine is produced from coca grown in the Andes in South America. Its huge popularity and illegality has created huge profits for the deep state group with the wherewithal to traffic it on a large scale. So much evidence has accumulated that the CIA's name has become synonymous with cocaine trafficking to USA,[5] but the US Deep State does not have a monopoly over its export and is engaged in war with the Hezbollah, Syria, Iran triangle which uses submarines to smuggle it via Africa (especially Sierra Leone).[6]

Heroin

The majority of the world's heroin is produced from opium grown in Afghanistan. Sibel Edmonds has stated that deep state interests move most of it to Turkey for refinement before it is shipped to Europe or North America. Harvests are much greater now than before the US lead invasion.

Alfred McCoy wrote in 1972 that the SDECE financed all of its covert operations during the Indochina War from its control of the Indochina drug trade.

Synthetic Drugs

Synthetic drugs can be made anywhere in the world with roughly equal ease, and so their production is harder to interdict. The problem is tackled by having a range of international treaties which attempt to limit and monitor these drugs' precursors, that is, the chemicals from which they are most easily and safely synthesized. This regulatory area is of course of great interest to big pharma.

Amphetamines

As well as recreational use, these can be used to facilitate fighters in war, giving an energy boost, lifting mood and decreasing appetite and have historically been used as such. It also clouds judgment and has long term health consequences.

LSD

LSD, or 'Acid' is a popular psychedelic that was first produced in 1938, derived from ergot. Just after World War II it was researched by the MK Ultra and related projects for its potential in extracting information from prisoners, but those projects concluded that it was not reliable enough. LSD is extremely small (normal doses are a fraction of a milligram) but the drug itself is relatively fragile. Skilled chemists such as Nicholas Sand have produced millions of doses of LSD.

MDMA

MDMA, 'Ecstasy' or 3-4,Methylenedioxymethamphetamine was made illegal in UK in 1977 and in USA in 1985. It functions similarly to an amphetamine in terms of energy, but increases empathy which renders it unsuitable for exploitation in combat situations.

Augusto Pinochet“was widely supported in ultraright western circles surrounding the CIA and private groups as the WACL, Le Cercle and American Security Council. Recent evidence has shown that Pinochet was involved in large-scale cocaine trafficking to Europe and that by the 1980s this was sanctioned as long a portion of the profits went to the Reagan-backed Contra armies in Nicaragua.”Augusto Pinochet
Our Secret Servants - The Shayler Affair“the Americans have devoted several hundred times the money and the manpower at the disposal of MI6 to attacking the global drug trade without appearing to have any significant result.”
