Drug Trafficking and Drug Abuse on Board Ship IT104242
6th ed. Subtitle: Guidelines for Owners and Masters on Preparation, Prevention and Response. Drug trafficking is undertaken by sea because of the opportunities for high volume movements, from producing to consuming countries, as traffickers attempt to penetrate the most profitable illicit markets. Once a drug consignment has entered a region, traffickers and their agents have little difficulty in moving it within that region, taking advantage of the general wish of governments to facilitate the movement of persons and goods across frontiers.
