The illegal drug trade or drug trafficking is a global black market dedicated to the cultivation, manufacture, distribution and sale of drugs that are subject to drug prohibition laws. Most jurisdictions prohibit trade, except under license, of many types of drugs through the use of drug prohibition laws.. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime's World Drug Report estimates the size. The regulation of illegal drugs relies heavily on punitive criminal justice system responses, while the regulation of legal drugs involves controlling access to them, taxing them, and, in some cases, dealing with the harmful consequences associated with the use of these drugs.   The global illicit drugs market is enormous, estimated at some $ billion. This makes it one of the largest businesses in the world. Some believe in strong prohibition enforcement, even engaging in a “war on drugs”. Others argue for decriminalization to minimize the crime and health effects associated with the market being controlled by criminals.

Drug Control Laws. Most national laws controlling “illegal” drugs are based on the UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs () and the Convention on Psychotropic Substances () that define a range of substances that are supposedly sufficiently harmful to be removed from the usual sales regulations (see Table 1).They are made “illegal,” which means that punishments are implemented.

For almost a century, the central component of U.S. illicit drug policy has been a legal structure under which the medical and scientific uses of opiates, cocaine, and other controlled drugs are tightly restricted and the production and distribution of these drugs for nonmedical and nonscientific uses are prohibited. Violations of those prohibitions are punishable by severe criminal sanctions. The emphasis of this book is on the control of illegal drugs, rather than alcohol or prescription drugs. It is understood that in anti-drug policies the line between legal and illegal drugs has often been blurred, not always reflecting their relative health or social consequences. DRUGS (ILLEGAL).
