Criminals are not lacking in imagination. Police authorities need to keep abreast of synthetic drugs and trafficking routes discovered by criminals.


Criminal networks are involved in trafficking a variety of drugs, including cannabis, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. The increased permeability of international borders has led to the growth of drug abuse and the accessibility of drugs on a global scale.

The main actors in this international trade are growers, producers, transporters, suppliers and dealers. It affects most of our member countries, undermining their political and economic stability, and destroying the lives of many people and weakening the communities affected. End-users and addicts are often the victims of a powerful and manipulative network.


Drug trafficking is usually associated with other forms of crime such as money laundering and corruption, while trafficking routes can be used by criminal networks to transport other illicit products.
