I hope that when using this as a tool for further knowledge, you are as touched as I was. Hearing the stories of drug trafficking has led me to understand the reality of this issue and has impacted my understanding of the world around me. To realize that many of these drug trafficking cartels operate in the United States was horrifying and scary. By using the resources below, you will gain a greater understanding of this issue as well as a better appreciation for the world around you. I hope that after reading about the drug violence that has literally torn Bissau-Guinea apart, you are shocked and after reading about the inter-connectedness of drug trafficking with other issues you are appalled. Most of all, I hope that you are inspired.
