The United States has never been neglected in drug issues of the world due to its significant role in its use, trafficking, and economy of drug dealing. The country plays an important role in the new maps of drug dealing throughout the world. The negligence, nevertheless, has been cast upon the role of US government in drug trafficking as a corrupt business. According to the official statistics:
Over 30 percent of all offenses in 2013 were related to drug trafficking, and 22,215 cases of drug trafficking were reported to the United States Sentencing Commission in the 2013 fiscal year.
Drug abuse costs more than $181 billion each year only for health care, work issues, legal costs, and law enforcements in America. These are the costs the general public is dealing with after addiction and the use of drugs which themselves cost separately. There are more than 330,000 drug inmates in US prisons whose families are directly put under harsh life conditions too.
For the government and CIA, however, drug is seen as an opportunity, not a threat. Dealing drug and trafficking to various parts of the world has direct and indirect financial benefits for the government heads and officials. Alfred McCoy, Peter Dale Scott, Gary Webb, Michael Ruppert, Alexander Cockburn and finally the Mexican journalist Anabel Hernández have multiple books explicating the role of US government in extensive drug trafficking to the world via the US.
The first country that strikes the mind when talking about drugs and specially opium is Afghanistan. The military presence of the US in Afghanistan for years facilitated for the governmental businessmen to make a major part of their resources in Afghanistan. Ahmed Wali Karzai, brother of Hamid Karzai who was the former President of Afghanistan, was on the payroll of the CIA to do its transactions.
Supporting a secret war in Laos during the years between 1961 to 1975, the US trafficked drugs to the region called the Golden Triangle. Based on the revealed documents, CIA agents made the connections for the facilitation of the deals. In October 2013, it was revealed that the death of covert DEA agent Enrique Camarena was planned by CIA operatives for removing the obstacle on the dealing processes. This was revealed by a former CIA contractor in a talk with American television.
The DEA office in Honduras was closed for the same reason too. An investigation in 1986 on the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations by the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations proved the role of America in trafficking drug to the country. Invasion to Panama in 1989 was also another ground for CIA agents to facilitate and boost their deals in the target country.
Mena, Arkansas A number of allegations have been written about and several local, state, and federal investigations have taken place related to the alleged use of the Mena Intermountain Municipal Airport as a CIA drop point in large scale cocaine trafficking beginning in the early 1980s.
Secret agreements between US government and other countries to use them as user or intermediate have taken place during the multiple presidents. The economy of human trafficking is so much so important that no government in the US can neglect or avoid it. What is neglected here is the citizens of the US and other countries that hurt more and more.
