Drugs and Terrorism

Drugs and Terrorism

Narco-terrorism is a very interesting topic. Terrorism and drugs often have a symbiotic relationship and conspiracies are quite common to both. Using conspiracy laws to apprehend narco-terrorist suspects can help stop both the threat of possible deaths and the spread of drugs. This teamwork assignment will explore the concept of narco-terrorism.

Complete the following:

  1. Read the drug intelligence brief, “Drugs and Terrorism: A New Perspective” that starts on page 228. As a team:
    • Discuss the concept of Narco-Terrorism.
    • Discuss the different organizations listed in the intelligence brief.
    • Discuss whether or not you think there is truly a link between drugs and terrorism. If you believe they are linked, discuss whether or not putting a stop to drug trafficking would also hinder terrorist actions.
