Illegal drug trade
In a place where the sale of popular drugs
is prohibited and unable to get a license
it is very common for an illegal drug trade.
An example of this is here in the United States.
There has been a series of situations found where
this kind of drug abuse has been identified.
Many of the strong nations consider drug trafficking a very serious problem. In the year 1989 the United States of America disrupted the drug trade coming from
Panama. The year of 2000 the value of the global trade in illegal drugs was at about 400 billion U.S. dollars.
If you add this to the global trade value of legal drugs at the very same time it will be even more than what is spend for food.

drug market was estimated at about $13 billion at the production level, at $94 billion at the whole sale level and $322 billion based on retail prices and other losses into account.The major consumer countries include the United States and European nations even though the consumption is worldwide.The major producer countries include Afghanistan and Colombia.
