Notes

Abstract: This paper explores the relationship between the global drug trade and the corruption of government officials. The drug trade's corrupting effects are evident in major drug-cultivating countries, drug-transit countries and drug-consumer countries. The author examines these three stages of the drug trade and how corruption operates at each stage. This study includes an analysis of corruption in Columbia, Mexico and the United States. The paper is organized into 5 sections. Section 1 is a brief history of the international drug prohibition regime. Section 2 defines the problem. Section 3 describes cases of corruption by country. Section 4 details U.S. policies implemented to prevent corruption. Section 5 concludes analyzing the potential for success of implementing U.S. anti-corruption policies in drug-producing and drug-transit countries.
