Did you know that the main cause of disruption in the natural flow of legal tender/currencies in not only the U.S. but also, Mexico, Europe and, the Middle East money laundering due to international drug trafficking?

Interviewed by The Independent on Sunday, Mr Saviano said of the international drugs trade, that “Mexico is its heart and London is it’s head”. He Said, the cheapness and the ease of laundering dirty money, through UK-based banks Gave London a key role in drugs trade. “Antonio Maria Costa of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime found that drug trafficking organisations were blatantly recycling dirty money through European and American banks, but no one takes any notice,” he said. “He found that banks were welcoming dirty money because they need cash, liquidity during the financial crisis.

Not illegally, legally, because it can come in because of a lack of regulation.”

“In the past, famous drug lords like Pablo Escobar, Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, and through many more years, were able to amass millions of American dollars or more selling drugs to American consumers. But as enforcement has gotten stronger, less and less of these profits make it back to the source”.The Fix

This is referring to the manufacturing of fraudulent bills produced in rural print shops finding it harder to mimic the key signs in and on a note of legal tender. Providing fake paper in drug rings is now too risky so a new era of criminal has been born. One that works hard daily alongside honest employees in a general workplace as a snuffer for the scent of “dirty money” made after hours and as a means of justifying the money as honest, hard earned cash.…

“How will my family eat without me there to provide for them?”

“What is going to happen to my job?”

“I have a life still, and bills to pay. If I go for treatment, I’ll lose everything!”

“If my life depends on it and I’m broke, how am I supposed to pay for treatment?”

Drug rehab treatment can be quite costly, and for some people, the main impediment standing between them and clean living is the often incorrect belief that they’re not going to be able to pay for their care. The problem with this thinking is that it doesn’t just affect the addicted person and his or her family. It also leads to spiraling national healthcare costs.
