Drug Smuggling

Drug smuggling is on a current up raise and there seems to be no way of

stunting it growth. But here a some ways some states are trying to slow the

rate of drug smuggling.

In Illinois there is a program called ?Operation Cash Crop? or the OCC.

This is a combine of the ISP and the DEA. It’s goal is to locate places where

marijuana is grown then destroy all of it’s gardens. During the span of 1983-88

these ?OCC? led to 442 arrest and destroyed over 2 million marijuana plants. And

in 1984 there was 64,300 plants destroyed along.

There is also a program called Operation Valkritre or O.V., this program

arrested 633 suspected drug smugglers and seized nearly 3,000 Kilograms of

marijuana and 2,000 kilograms of crack that was being brought into Illinois.

More then 3 quarters of these arrest were in 1988 alone.

Some of the thing that the government are trying to do to help stop this

horrible thing are sending the army out in the streets to help seize some of the

drugs on the streets, and the government is also putting more money into protect

the boarders from all immigrants bringing illegal drugs into the United States

of America. There is also a lot of money put into a huge wall/fence going across

most of the whole southern boarder line. Along the coast of the east side and

the west side are hundreds of check in places to help stop from letting in

illegal drugs.

Here is a case about 21 sailors that were arrested for smuggling cocaine

and heroin to Italy. They have been doing those on a regular basis because most

navy trips can go through boarders without being check for illegal drugs. The

sailors were caught with 20 pounds of illegal drugs which had street value of

thousands of dollars. The reason there are not a lot of illegal drugs coming

into the U.S. boarders is cause we have high tech aircraft’s and vessels and

surveillance to detect drugs.

Some of the places where crack is a problem are where a country does not

have money to support a high tech drug resistance around the borders of there

country. That is the reason that there is such a huge drug problem in countries

like Mexico and some of the poorer counties in Russia. Most of the drugs that

seep into American are usually brought into from Mexico.

The government is trying to build a more resistant border line to stop

all flow of drugs coming into the American boarder line.

After the drugs make it into America they go to California and Arizona.

Then there are allot of people that will buy the illegal substance. After it

start in California the drug goes to the whole country. The reason there is

not allot of drugs coming in from the east coast is because we have numerous

check in places where all items on the ship or boat are thoroughly checked to

make sure there are no illegal substances.

But on the border line in Mexico there are some places where there are

no check in places and that is why more drugs are illegally transported in the

United States.

Some of the ways people can illegally but secretly bring in the drugs

are in different forms. Like inside Tums, frozen foods, and in baking soda

boxes. The reason this works is because at the check in posts they don’t

usually check foods and other everyday things.

There are now allot more programs trying to help stop drugs from coming

into the U.S.A. here are some names of these programs, C.I.A., D.E.A., and the

C.E.O.’s and there is also allot of local drug resistance groups.

Now you wonder where all of crack and illegal drugs are made. It all

starts in places like Mexico where drugs can be grown and you don’t even get in

trouble for it. Then they bring it to the U.S. where the poorest person that

brings the drug in can get what seems to be a large amount of money for the

illegal substance, and that is why there are so many illegal drugs in the United

States. Over half of the drugs that make it into America are from place’s like

Colombia in Central America.

Some of the techniques that the police attempt to do are going out into

the streets to act like they are people buying drugs. So what they do is

approach a seller then they ask how much for the product and what they are

getting and then they show there badges and make the bust. This is one of the

best techniques there is because there is no way of being detected by the drug

dealer, that’s why there were over 1,000 arrests in the year nineteen-ninety

five. After all of the arrest are made you may wonder where all of the

substances and money end up, well the police intake them to the police station

the money is used to either purchase new equipment or given to charity. The

drugs are usually destroyed or taken to a local hospital for medical use.

Most drugs are sold and bought in poor suburbs. This location is meant

to be an areas where very few police drive through. But the police are starting

to catch on.

Although there are allot of new high tech ways of locating and stooping

drug transfers from happening.

there still are allot of illegal drugs out on the streets of this

greatly populated country. There has been a slight uprise of all drug smuggling

arrests., which means there are still allot of drugs out there. But the War

Against Drugs is still going on and maybe one day in our future these country

really will be DRUG FREE.

Now about the legalization of drugs and what Richard Nixon the president

in ?72 thought when he came into office about the drug problem startin to expand

so he thought about legalizin all drugs except heroin. But he didn’t and I

think he did the right thing.

The percentage of 12-17 year olds has doubled from 1.6 mil. to 2.9 mil.

1 in three high school seniors now smoke marijuana and 48.4% of the class of

1995 has tried it.

L.S.D. use has been soaring in the last 25 year it went up 11.7%

The rate of cocaine and heroin related hospitalizations reports have

went to 65% since 1990 to 1994.

The place most of the drugs have the most problem is in the western part

of America properly cause most of the drug comes from the Mexican borders.
