Narcotics Trafficking and Government Prevention
As time progresses, the battle on drugs continues. In order to be truly effective, we have to get to the root of the problem, where do these drugs come from? The illegal drug market in the United States is one of the most profitable markets in the World today. Within this profitable drug market there is a highly diversified variety of drugs coming into the United States.

(http://www.usdoj.gov/dea/pubs/intel/01020/). Haitian traffickers, taking advantage of maritime shipments, are transporting cocaine to South Florida and are becoming a major threat to the United States.
