Let me begin by stating categorically that the act of drug trafficking is illegal and punishable under the law. It is a wrong and destructive way of making money
Note: People who purchase and use trafficked drugs jeopardize their health and may be liable to die earlier than expected.
Drug trafficking may be defined as the transfer, selling, importing or exporting of illegal drugs from the point of production to the final consumer (point of consumption).
Examples of drugs trafficked include cocaine, marijuana, heroine, cannabis, crack, LSD and so on. All of these drugs are unlawful within a nation or a state.
Drug trafficking is considered a greater offense when compared to drug possession. It is a criminal act under the constitution of a country or state. For this reason, drug traffickers are often prosecuted as stated by a country's constitution.
Some of the penalties for the crime of drug trafficking may include death by hanging (in certain countries) or life imprisonment. The intents of these severe penalties is to discourage individuals, people and organizations from this illegal act.
An important question to ask is:
Why do people indulge in drug trafficking even when they may (or may not) be aware of its evil?
Normally, Drug trafficking charges are attributed to the scale or level of the dealers. This may range from small street dealers to large drug cartels. Punishments in most countries will likely vary depending on the scale or level of the trafficker's operation and the nature of drugs being trafficked. For instance, a drug trafficker may face 1-10 years of imprisonment and fines of about one million naira for marijuana trafficking, while another may face more than 30 years in prison and fines of over ten million naira if convicted of cocaine trafficking.
It is also noteworthy to state that drug trafficking is often accompanied with murder and kidnapping of rival gangs or even innocent persons. These drugs may also mislead the users of trafficked drugs into indulging in cultism.
