Why Europe is Flooded with Drugs

Why Europe is Flooded with Drugs, this documentary is about drug trafficking in Europe. It explores how South American cartels are flooding Europe with cocaine, while Afghan heroin supplies reach new highs. Law enforcement agencies are struggling to contain the situation.

The video explains that Europe has become a new frontier for South American drug cartels. Cocaine is trafficked to Europe mostly by sea, often in container shipments. Colombia remains the main source of cocaine found in Europe, but direct shipments to Europe from Peru and Bolivia are becoming increasingly common. The documentary says that the instability due to the failed war in Afghanistan has led to a 300 percent increase in the quantity of heroin hitting the European market.The Balkan route, which was once the hub for heroin trafficking in the 1980s and 1990s, is now changing. Criminal organizations are exploiting new routes, including the northern route through the Stans and Russia, and the southern route which goes down through Pakistan across the Macaron coast into east Africa and then up through Europe.Law enforcement agencies around the world are collaborating to fight drug trafficking. However, the sheer size of Africa and a lack of transnational policing makes drug trafficking there nearly impossible to track. The video also talks about the economic impact of the drug trade. The criminal market in Europe is worth 24 billion euros a year and cocaine is Europe’s most widely used illegal stimulant. The documentary concludes by saying that the outlook for Europe’s war on drugs is bleak, as traffickers are flooding the market with cheap cocaine.
