I would like to conclude my paper by reiterating the danger posed by drug trafficking on society as a whole. It is a well-documented fact that there is a direct link between increased drug use and increased crime rates in any given state of the United States of America.
The larger drug cartels will also not hesitate to arm their small time subsidiaries in order to make sure that the partner will run a highly organized and tight ship. This is usually the case for most illegal immigrants who join gangs when they arrive in the USA.
The so-called street gangs are influential people who have direct links with drug cartels over in Mexico or Colombia.
