Drugs Alleged on Greenpeace Boat
Do you ever think about how illegal drugs are transported around the world? Do you suspect that there's a significant amount of corruption involved, with shipping operative paid off and officials bribed to look the other way? Well, serious charges were raised recently when the Russian government accused a Greenpeace boat of carrying drugs in the Arctic sea, where the boat had been on a mission of protest. The Greenpeace boat had targeted a European company called Gazprom, which they accuse of committing environmental atrocities in the Arctic sea as it drills for oil.
These allegations against the Greenpeace boat are very serious. Some of the crew members could face up to 15 years in jail. Whether or not this specific ship was actually carrying drugs, the fact is that the international drug trade has a startlingly effective network of shipping routes and drug mules. Most illegal drugs, including meth, heroin, marijuana, cocaine, PCP, and Molly are not actually grown or manufactured in the United States, and so they have to be imported somehow. Prescription pills, on the other hand, need a country-wide network of distribution in order to be moved around, even though they are produced in this country.
Whether or not this Greenpeace boat was carrying illegal drugs, the fact remains that this is another problem caused by the abuse of drugs worldwide. The use and abuse of drugs causes untold loss (including deaths) in the world-economists estimate that the cost of addiction is in the billions for the United States.
