    I had a professor who used to send chemicals needed to make artificial sweeteners to Bogota that happened to be a white powder. Every shipment, without fail, was flagged because it was suspected to be cocaine, and every time my professor was like “WHY WOULD I BE SENDING COCAINE *TO* COLOMBIA”

    For real tho they would legalize it if they wanted it to stop as he said. But it’s more profitable to have the “war” on drugs continue because that employs tons of agency’s/agents drug smugglers/dealers prison staff of all variety. Pharmaceutical company’s health care stuff the list goes on and on wow 🤯

    @Bros 360 True that you can't stop *COLD TURKEY* - but no-one is saying that. You must find the root cause of the problem. I've figured out one of the main root causes is pain. What type of pain?

    When I was a counselor in a drug rehab I taught classes in anger management, stress reduction etc, and I always said to the group of 40, many who were dealers and long-term jail heads, "You can be an addict or have peace of mind, but you can't have both, AND you can be a drug dealer or have peace of mind, but you can't have both." This guy confirmed the second half of my statement, describing the fear and paranoia that defines the dealer's lifestyle.

    I was offered several thousand from a dealer once to do a smuggling trip UK to Amsterdam return flight , I was so tempted , I was a cabbie at the time, and told one of my clued up passengers about the offer, he educated me as to the purpose of decoys (where someone carrying a small amount is tipped off to customs to take focus away from a bigger amount), I was naive and may well have taken that smuggling trip, glad I never in hindsight.

    He did a great job articulating the process of smuggling drugs and I especially agree with his opinion that legalizing would probably be the only method to end the war on drugs. However, I’m sure we can all imagine the issues with legalizing drugs too.

    @Sarah C Just to clear it up: Portugal only decriminalized drug possession of quantities considered only suitable for personable consumption. Possession above a certain limit is still considered drug dealing in the eyes of the law. Consumption and possession has been destigmatized and people get redirected to social services and addiction treatment, which massively reduced the impact of out-in-the-open drug use and is a great approach imo, but hard drugs have not been 'legalized' at all.

    I'm from Cali, Colombia. It saddens me knowing that my city is known for that (here you rarely see anyone doing drugs, except for the homeless), I know we have a lot of potential for creating amazing businesses, i dont get why people choose to do it the illegal way :(. I've traveled to different countries and I've always been asked about drugs, if I sell, if I take them, if I know someone, or they only recognize the country for that. So I ask you as an international person to please encourage the good businesses of my country like tourism and coffee, to trade legally and report any illegal act (also, become friends with good Colombians and you'll have a person who will make you laugh for life). There are a lot of amazing people here and they are the ones who need to be recognized around the world, not the criminals... we try to recover from that, but it's only with your help overseas that we can clean our name and come up with better ways of fighting that. Love from Cali.

    You know what, I'm under the belief that most people can be anything. Years before this video too, obviously certain physical traits help, like height in basketball or being a jockey, and obviously if you're born disabled it will be harder. The only two things that make a difference are how much a person wants it and determination to have it. Everything is nurtured. I think his name is Bugsy Moes, the shortest NBA player in the 5ft range, I think. And what about every South Korean and Japanese person? They're only intelligent because from young they're taught to be.

    @NLX78 How often does it happen that you personally come into contact with drugs you found in a container?

  • NLX78

    I work in the port of Rotterdam at a container terminal as planner. I have contact with customs etc. Sometimes one was tempted with large sums and after a while cave in. There is limited capacity for scanning containers, so the main focus lies on the ones from South America, either directly to here to via a transshipment. And then they needed people to pick it up. So the job of the custom guy was to and try to make sure that one wasn't selected, and then inform the others where the 1 container would be among the tens of thousands others. But those guys were quite smart as well, living a normal life from the outside. At least totally different from your every day mules swallowing capsules and take an airplane. But's getting harder for them to pay off people as time passed. Other systems with multiple people needing to be there when random (actually most likely to contain drugs) containers are chosen by the computer. After 9/11 security in ports worldwide were sharpened as well, having to show ID every single time you went to a terminal and employees their passes, but those can be swapped out to the 'unloaders' of course, next step will be facial recognition I guess. Nr's of kilos drugs seized in Rotterdam, but hundreds of thousands will make it, through here, in other ports or even just out in the North Sea and then picked up with a fishing boat, or smaal submarines: - 2016 = 13,000 kg - 2017 = 9,500 kg - 2018 = 22,600 kg - 2019 = 34,500 kg - 2020 = 41,500 kg

    I'm a recovering heroin addict. You know what stopped me from using, robbing, stealing & gettin' locked up?? When I could legally obtain it. Granted it was in the form of methadone but the brain doesn't know the difference. I got my HIGHLY REGULATED fix every day which killed my cravings for anything else, & now I'm a productive member of society who volunteers & helps addicts on a daily basis. Why can't the same thing be done w/other drugs?? If we can put a man on the moon we can certainly find a way to legalize but HIGHLY regulate the other drugs. Obviously some drugs that wouldn't work with, LSD, other hallucinogens like 'shrooms & MDMA...but this guy hit the nail on the head. We're NEVER gonna effect demand, so why not get rid of the financial gain for drug manufacturers?? They did it w/marijuana, & as a card carrying member, lemme say it's a GREAT system!! 👍✌️

    @D O Double G I live in Canada. Health care, including addiction treatment, is a provincial responsibility while criminal law (including narcotics) is federal. Both fields are highly politicized, so safe consumption sites and safe supplies are unlikely to become widespread. Adiction treatment programs are chronically underfunded, with people still thinking that addiction is a moral issue. In reality, it's a mental and physical health issue.

    This thread quickly descended into abuse and name-calling so I think trying to make any point in here will be lost… but while we’re talking about synonyms and the true meaning of words, have any of you using the word “thug” actually looked it up? It’s about being violent and aggressive; “a violent or brutish criminal or bully”. It’s NOT a general synonym for “person who commits/has committed crimes”. Sure, the industry of dealing and trafficking drugs can definitely involve violence/brutality/murder/other such crimes on some level at various points in the chain (and that’s *not* ok - I’m definitely not saying that it is!), but it’s not the case that everyone involved in either dealing or trafficking is also someone violent or aggressive. It’s a simpler way to approach life if you can say someone is either a hero or a villain and write them off one way or the other, but it’s not useful or helpful. Real life isn’t that clear cut - sometimes “good people” do “bad things”, and vice versa. Superhero movies and TV shows have compounded on that kind of Disney idea of hero/villain, but it’s always the more nuanced take on things that make for more interesting and compelling viewing in the fiction landscape, and I think that’s because it’s a messier and yet more realistic view on how the world really is. I’m not coming here to judge what kind of person someone is, but to bang the drum of reminding everyone that humans be human, yo - we’re fallible, we can make mistakes, but we can also learn from mistakes, and just because we do one “bad” thing doesn’t mean we have to give up on trying to do better next time, or that we should now descend into self-hatred and/or double down on doing “bad things” (and this absolutely also goes for how we view others too). Maybe some of you reading this think that makes me a hippy, or “too soft” or “naive” - I really don’t care, and insulting me isn’t going to change this 😊 I used to be a LOT more black-and-white in my thinking about morality and what I thought of others, and I was fairly entrenched in my viewpoints and my emotional reactions towards others who I thought were “bad”, or who had done “bad things”. As I’ve grown older in the last ~15 years especially, I’ve shifted my perspective significantly, and have learned and discovered that it’s personally beneficial to take a more open-minded and nuanced approach to all of this, because people and life are both complicated, and just not that simple. From my personal life, I’ve learned that it’s entirely possible to condemn and definitely not condone a particular *action* someone has committed, but to understand that same person might now regret that action, understand the harm it caused, and be absolutely committed to not doing it again, and to be vigilant for that sort of thing in others going forward now too - there can be an understanding, and common cause, even if you’re coming at it from different angles and histories. I don’t think it benefits anyone, either individually or societally, to put people in permanent boxes of “bad” or “good”, with no method of transferring out of one into the other - this gives no incentive for breaking out of patterns of behaviour that negatively affects others, and seems to just entrench everyone further in where they are, so they just do more of the same. I think everyone has the capacity to learn new information, new perspectives, new understanding of how things affect others, and moderate their own actions going forward accordingly, and this is really important in how we deal with both life and people when things (or people) go off the rails in some way. But, nobody asked for my personal thesis on morality 😅 so I’m going to put my soapbox away and leave this comment thread alone for a bit. Hopefully there’s at least someone out there who reads this and gets something out of it, and it’s not just me shouting into the void. If not - hey ho. The first paragraph about the meaning of the word “thug” is what I came here for, anyway! 😆

    I kinda had the same thought process. Just with marijuana and here in Canada. I’m 20 but I started smoking when I was around 14-15 and have been ever since but a lot heavier since it’s been legal. That being said, when I was in highschool and elementary, finding a dealer was easy. Everybody told me it would be hard but it was basically like buying anything else. I even got into selling weed for a bit, since the legalization of weed, all the dealers I used to knew that sold weed had either lost almost all their business and sold tiny amount to real young kids, lost their business completely, or had to either upgrade. My city has about 100000 people in it and since the first 3 dispensaries opened 2 years ago, we have like 20 now. Not only is the weed better and easy as buying a coffee, but the prices for ounces are pretty cheap too, they tend to get people overpaying on grams.

    I agree with him. The only way to win that war IS to legalize all drugs, make them safer, tax them a lot and use the money for improving education, making addiction treatment facilities, improving healthcare, etc. And it creates more jobs too. However, better education and healthcare actually reduce drug use a bit.

    What I’m seeing in clients (I work in mental health and addictions) is that the cocaine is much more tainted with opioids than back in the day. People are overdosing on cocaine that is laced constantly and here in Canada, cocaine is no longer a ‘safer party time option’. You are risking an OD now on each use.

    @Michael .Green Not sure I agree with your calculations. There are 1 million grams per tonne. Let's be very conservative and say the product was being sold pure at the street level (rare, but for the sake of argument) for £80 per gram. 1,000,000g x £80 = £80,000,000. Times that by 42 (tonnes) = 3.36 billion. To get to £21 billion the product would need to be cut 1:6 (so garbage product) and still sold for £80 a gram.

    He isn't being truthful. He mentions his friend who was caught with 42 tonnes of cocaine.... You know that's worth 21 BILLION pounds, Euros or dollars, at street value, right? Not million, billion. He wouldn't get near to somebody who was able to move that kind of money. That person able to move that kind of weight would have been so high ranked, that he would have so much protection the prison would basically be working for him. Furthermore. He says he smuggled 5 millions dollars worth.... He so says that he smuggled 5 KG a time... Well, 5 KG, after weighing it etc, is worth 500k at Street value in Europe and USA. So he wasn't doing it for years, it would have been only two shipments.

    Actually there is also "decriminilization", where addicts can choose between going to prison or getting help. It's what has worked miracles in Portugal. Just legalizing drugs and letting the addicts live their lives has been catastrophic for areas like San Francisco. It is factually proven to not work.

Especially something that heavy. You can make some serious money for sure, but long term it’s really not worth it.

A friend took out a finance for a LAPTOP that she didn't pay off in interest-free time and essentially became a debt slave for so many years I couldn't convince her not to do one of these mule jobs.

    The only thing I would disagree with this guy on is the notion of heavily taxing drug consumption. If legalised drugs are too expensive, a market will still exist for criminals to exploit as they will be able to sell drugs cheaper through exploitation. Instead, we should undercut the cartels and ensure so called illicit drugs are available at cost price. At the same time, we can expand drug awareness programmes and treat people like responsible adults who can make their own recreational decisions about what they ingest. This is the dignified and rational solution, in my view. We can thereby also track who is consuming what, in what quantities, and offer constant access to rehab services and re-integration programmes for addicts. Edit: legalised drugs should not be privatised: the profit motive mixed with drugs will incentive companies to get the most people possible addicted to drugs. Therefore it needs to be on a non-profit basis

    @Edwin Romilly Hi Edwin, thanks for your reply. There can definitely be a discussion around whether legalising would lead to significantly more drug use and also around how we can make a world where people have less negative life experiences that lead them to abuse drugs. I think the evidence from Portugals decriminalisation of all drugs in 2001 leads to a pretty clear conclusion though: this approach leads to less drug related deaths as people who inject are provided clean needles, given assurances over the purity and dose of their drugs to avoid accidental overdose etc. For me a hugely important thing is that we don't let drugs become another market driven commodity though, I really think they should be produced and sold by our governments at cost price so that no one can make money off of people's addictions. Otherwise, if I was a heroine ceo the market would encourage me to get more people addicted/abuse drugs, this is definitely not something we want!

    @Kenneth Davis Well the idea would be that, if cocaine were legalised, it could also be regulated and quality controlled like other legal products. Therefore producers would be forced to produce pure cocaine instead of mixing it with toxic chemicals that improve profit margins (unless cocaine could be cut with something that makes it "healthier", I don't know enough about the process to rule that out.)

    Fair comment but i think the damage from illegal drugs far exceeds the damage that would be done if it was regulated,Legalised!!etc. -Maybe more resources could be put into- Why people feel the need for drugs in the first place???Is that boredom,lack of Stimulation,no awareness,depression,mental health etc.. There will always be a black market but if legalised would make it alot harder for cartels to Maximise profit,And hopefully reduce the violence and Stronghold the cartels have on certain geographical areas etc ,but also You could argue as more people are exposed to drugs would that mean more people would do it that otherwise wouldn’t of?? best wishes

Possession is no longer a crime, just distribution and that has to be significant and of a particularly egregious substance. Upside? We don't build prisons faster than schools, tie up the legal system with an economic supply/demand logistics social phenomenon, and the heavy taxation goes to enforcement to keep the grifters out. Anyone in the US who complains about "liberal" laws like we have is in on the grift and wanting to keep it as illicit as possible because they will go broke.

    That argument about legalizing drugs and then taxing them heavily sounds great in theory, but in practice it doesn't always work. In California marijuana is legal but still between 80% and 90% of the weed on the market was produced and sold illegally. Why? Because of greed. The dealers will rather avoid paying taxes, and the customers will rather buy cheaper drugs. Yes, people want drugs legalized, but they do not want to pay more for them.

Because addicts go out of their way to source substances from dealers who can’t and isn’t even their job to regulate the individuals who are regularly purchasing stuff. That’s like a bottle store clerk selling alcohol to alcoholics, it’s none of their business why, what for or how much alcohol the individual wants to buy. Obviously one example is illegal and one isn’t but technically it’s the same concept. These individuals will always supply the demand. If we want to change anything, you don’t go for those supplying because they can always be replaced, you target those demanding the drugs…

    Very insightful. I've always thought that all drugs and prostitution should be legal. Not because they're good things but by legalizing them there is much less harm for all involved. Best of luck to you sir.

    The very best prostitutes are children pre-puberty. But if that makes your life easier let's let them carry the burden.

    Finally an honest explained video. So many of these people exaggerate or lie to make themselves look good. But this guy just says the facts, he didn’t do this or that simply because it wasn’t a good strategy. While others would have lied some ethical reason

    @SweetJohnnyCage - Narrated Guides & Walkthroughs pretty much everything in VICE videos is lies, or somehow untrue.

    All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God the rightousness of God is available through faith in Jesus Christ. there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. in Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgivness of sins according to the riches of His grace.

    @K MA He is not of the opinion that you can’t stop it @6:13 He fully believes there are not less than two ways to solve drugs. Why few minutes later he says only one EXISTS 13:11 and why did you watch him say both things and trust him?

    @K MA You misunderstand. I didn't say that lying is ethical, what I meant is that in other Explained videos there are people that want to look ethical so they often lie their reasoning behind certain things, often being a statement that would be ethical if it wasn't a lie. But regarding the legalization of drugs, it has somewhat been proven to decrease drug use, as demonstrated in Portugal in 2001 when a new law was passed to make all drug use decriminalized. This is not the same as the government being the one to sell the drugs, though. Drug trafficking and use of drugs was still illegal, the only difference was that there was no criminal punishment for the latter. After this law was passed, drug use went down. Making drugs legal is not the same as making them decriminalized. What the man in this video explained was in the right direction but not all the way there. I think that all drugs should be decriminalized and those who are found to be drug users should be sent to/reccommended rehabilitation instead of a fine or a jail sentence. Drug trafficking should still always be a criminal offence as they are the ones who are at fault
