Drugs Fuel Terrorism

https://www.lawenforcementtoday.com/drugs-fuel-terrorism/

Published on December 7, 2017

The sale of illegal drugs fuels terrorism by pouring profits into dangerous ideologies, fanning the flames of hatred and violence around the world. The connection between drugs and terror is highly predictable, based on political and economic principles, and this linkage creates ethical dilemmas for drug users and policy makers alike. It is critically important to understand that drug profits enable terrorist organizations to turn powder into blood.

THE NEXUS:

The majority of the world’s cocaine comes from Colombia and most of the world’s heroin is produced in Afghanistan. In both countries, terrorist groups influence the drug trade and fund their operations with drug proceeds. According to the DEA, approximately 37 percent of officially designated Foreign Terrorist Organizationshave possible ties to drug trafficking. That percentage doesn’t include many undesignated purveyors of terror, like the Afghan Taliban, so the number of groups supporting terrorism with drug sales is probably much higher.
