The illegal drug trade or drug trafficking is a global black market and consists of the cultivation, manufacture, distribution and sale of illegal drugs. While some drugs are legal to possess and sell, in most jurisdictions laws do not allow the trade of certain types of drug.

Those drugs involve heroin, cocaine, marijuana or other drugs. Drug traffickers may punished with time in prison for several years. In some countries, the crime carries the death penalty.

Punishment[change | change source]

Several countries use the death penalty to punish people for drug trafficking.
