Drug Trade Routes
This map shows the main international routes taken by the
traffic in cocaine, heroin and marijuana. They are very similar to the
routes taken by traditional commodity exports from the Third world
to the rich world - and to the net flow of resources between rich and poor.
Most of the profits of the drug trade remain in the rich world, too.
