THE HISTORY OF DRUG TRAFFICKING TO THE USA

If you're interested in programmes like Narcos and Breaking Bad, this video by Antiwonk will be an insightful look into how drugs and drug trafficking have become an important - if not inseperable - part of the history of the U.S.A. This goes all the way back to colonial times, when the revolutionaries rebelled against British tariffs, through to prohibition era smuggling, the U.S. support for South American dictators, the crack-cocaine epidemic and more. It shows how trying to ban drugs has become a futile game of cat and mouse, as one market shuts down and another fills the gap in order to fulfill supply and demand.
